Greenway Parks Residents Question Men in Trees

tree-img_1656-low-resPeople around here sure take their trees seriously. The latest uproar over Oncor efforts to keep its power lines branch-free came this week in Dallas’ Greenway Parks area (pictured). Homeowners there say contract trimmers showed up suddenly and proceeded to butcher everything in sight. So, some residents are asking, how come they can’t be notified of such pruning in advance–and then be given the option of hiring their own trimmers to do the work more “sensitively”? Oncor spokeswoman Jeamy Molina says everybody gets five days’ advance warning, including a full explanation of the process to come. And it’s not safe for anyone but Oncor’s experts, she adds, to prune trees within 10 feet of power lines.
