It's amazing, utilities that trim trees of their facilities (hey, that rhymes) just cut what they need to get stuff off the lines. With the same effort, and probably get results that would keep them clear for longer, they could actually get someone that knows how to trim trees and make it look good and be healthier for the trees as well. 3 birds with 1 stone.
No kidding, curb appeal! And this is along a main drive to a city park and a boat ramp. You know, streets that will be seen by people out recreating and spending money in their city!
