Contractors with approval from Network Tasman to cut trees that have grown into the Growth Limit Zone of their network of power lines. These contractors need to have arborists with special Utility training to safely cut trees close to live lines. They require refresher training every year. Trees have to be cut with specialist insulated equipment and under strict safety procedures to avoid anyone getting hurt and to avoid damage to the line or power outages. Network Tasman approved contractors are listed on our Trees and Power Lines
webpage. Treescape currently has the contract for Network Tasman tree cutting work. Any free trims or free fells will be carried out by them. We welcome applications from other tree contractors in the area and will update our list with any new additions.
