ACT homes owners are required by legislation to keep trees and vegetation clear of overhead powerlines, power poles, overhead cables and other overhead infrastructure maintained by ActewAGL.

Trees growing too close to powerlines are a significant safety risk – they can cause fires, bring down lines leading to the risk of electrocution, cause blackouts and make it difficult for maintenance to be carried out.    The home owner may be responsible for the cost of damage to ActewAGL infrastructure caused by trees, or other vegetation on their property.

Only tree surgeons who are accredited with ActewAGL are authorised to work in close proximity to powerlines.   (See ActewAGL website for more information).

O’Briens Tree Services are ActewAGL accredited and are fully trained to undertake powerline clearing in a safe manner.  We are happy to discuss any aspect of powerline clearing with you.

Please call Brett O’Brien on 0402 555 828 for an obligation free quote.

Brett and team - I just want to pass on how pleased Rob and I were with the work yesterday when u removed the very large tree in our backyard in Curtin. The team were so professional courteous, safe and cleaned up afterwards. For what has been a roller coaster of an emotional time , as we did not want to lose the tree but could not risk our our safety , your team made the whole experience so much nicer. I would recommend you to anyone who asks us! Cheers..

The team from O’Briens Tree Service have done two large tree removal jobs for us. Both times they have been prompt and professional. I was really impressed with the huge amount of work they got completed in one day.The price was very reasonable for the size of the job.Very easy to deal with. I would give them more than 5 stars if I could.Will have them back for any future tree work and will recommend them to any family or friends looking for tree services.
