Power Line Pruning

The pruning that is happening right here on Main St. in Pilot Mountain looks horrible! So lesson to be learned: when planting trees at your place, choose the right species in the right location. When trees come into contact with transmission lines, electric service can be interrupted and NOBODY likes that! Natural and directional pruning is actually healthier for the tree and will require less pruning in later years. For more information about trees, pruning, see:
