Nelson Hydro will be undertaking a tree trimming and hazard tree removal program within the City of Nelson and surrounding service area.

We live in and around the forest. We all love living around trees. It is hard to imagine our communities without trees. With that comes some responsibilities.
When trees or branches come into contact with power lines, the result is trouble. Tree contact or trees growing too close to powerlines can create a severe public safety hazard and may also cause interruption of Hydro service.
The best practices for vegetation management provide efficient and effective procedures for specific values and locations in order to protect the public, infrastructure and values relative to Nelson Hydro transmission and distribution lines.
