Vegetation management works will begin in Griffith early next month, as Essential Energy look to ensure safety and reliability of the local electricity network.
Operations Manager, Bronwyn Sigmund, said the work will preserve trees in the area while simultaneously ensuring power reliability for the community.
"Essential Energy's priority is a safe and reliable electricity network, and vegetation management is crucial to maintaining this," Ms Sigmund said.
"Trees coming into contact with overhead powerlines pose serious hazards to people, wildlife and the surrounding environment.
"The potential for bushfires, property damage, injury and unplanned power outages are all relevant risks to public safety."
All works will be undertaken by contractors who are qualified in all aspects of vegetation management, in compliance with the Australian Standard AS 4373 'Pruning of Amenity Trees'.
Essential Energy's cyclical vegetation management program ensures minimum safety clearances are maintained between trees and overhead powerlines, while also helping to minimise the amount of trimming required in future.
"Our contractors use directional pruning techniques that remove branches growing towards a powerline and encourage regrowth away from the power network," Ms Sigmund said.
"While this can affect the visual amenity, these techniques are considered best practice throughout the arboriculture industry and are used by most power companies in Australia."
Weather permitting, the vegetation work will commence in early-July and conclude in early-August.
