Ausgrid power line clearance

Ausgrid trimming, June 2017

Ausgrid trimming, June 2017

Ausgrid is currently undertaking power line clearance works to trees.

Contractors Treeserve are currently undertaking power line tree pruning works on behalf of Ausgrid.

Council does not prune trees for power line clearance, including main lines and residential lines. Ausgrid is responsible for pruning street trees in these circumstances and sets out the required clearance for its power lines.

Ausgrid are authorised to undertake this work to Council-owned and privately-owned trees under state legislation, and prune in accordance with guidelines for managing vegetation near power lines (PDF 1.1MB).

See Ausgrid's website for more information.

Ausgrid agrees to reduced pruning clearances

Ausgrid have committed to Council to reduce its required pruning clearances in the inner west. The commitments include:

  • Ausgrid agreed that trees that were outside of the 1 metre clearance zone will not be pruned by the contractor, as part of the maintenance pruning works.
  • Ausgrid have re-confirmed commitment to 1 metre pruning clearance plus 0.5 metres for regrowth (compared with the previous standard of up to 3 metres pruning clearance).
