Ausgrid tree worksAusgrid is currently undertaking power line clearance works to trees

Contractors Australian Urban Tree Services (AUTS) are currently undertaking power line tree pruning works on behalf of Ausgrid.

Council does not prune trees for power line clearance, including main lines and residential lines. Ausgrid is responsible for pruning street trees in these circumstances and sets out the required clearance for its power lines.

Ausgrid are authorised to undertake this work to Council-owned and privately-owned trees under state legislation, and prune in accordance with Guidelines for managing vegetation near power lines.

See Ausgrid's website for more information
