Electrical utility lines serve nearly every neighborhood, adding
efficiency and luxury to every day of our lives. Likewise, trees
enhance our neighborhoods and bring beauty to our surroundings.
Trees improve our air and water quality. They shade our homes,
screen undesirable views, and help reduce noise along with many
other ecosystem services. For us to have both trees and electrical
lines, those two things must share space where they sometimes
conflict with each other. This publication outlines the issues
surrounding the conflict between trees and electrical utility lines
as well as ways to avoid that conflict: FNR-512-W
The City of Tell City is in the process of a proposed
