Does National Grid follow tree-trimming guidelines? Your Stories Question
Does National Grid follow a set of guidelines when trimming trees around power lines? Answer:
National Grid crews follow a set of guidelines developed by the US Forest Service and endorsed by several tree-care societies and organizations when they trim trees.
National Grid tries to maintain at least six to 10 feet of clearance from primary lines – and more above and below primary conductors in an effort to minimize outages in a storm. If you have a question for the Your Stories team, call (315) 446-9900 or email YourStories@9wsyr.com.
