Line Clearance Tree Trimmers are critical members of the IBEW. They work hard every day to limit the possibility of electrical fires. In Southern Oregon, the long standing drought has made an already fire prone landscape even more susceptible to burning. That’s why the brothers and sisters at IBEW Local 659 have made it their priority to perfect their fire mitigation strategies and protect their local communities.
Next time you see a truck pull up to trim trees around your power lines, know they are working to prevent disasters and keep you and your family safe.
