Electricity network companies and tree owners must both comply with their obligations under the Electricity (Hazards from Trees) Regulations 2003. If you are a tree owner who is given notice to cut or trim a tree, and you fail to do so, or you fail to advise Eastland Network of the time of the cut or trim, you could be fined up to $10,000 plus $500 a day.

You could also be liable for costs in outages and repair of power lines if damage has been caused by your trees.

The Why

Trees close to power lines are a safety hazard, with the potential for causing injury or death by electrocution.

Trees near power lines are also a major cause of power outages.

Overgrown trees also prevent our powerline crews from repairing valuable equipment quickly and can delay the process of restoring power to get power supply back up and running.
