Look up before you plant, please! We depend on electricity everyday. It enhances our quality of life. However, electricity can sometimes be dangerous. Trees that grow too close to electric power lines threaten safety. It is preferred that no trees be planted under power lines, but if you must allow for at least 25 to 30 feet of minimum spacing from the power line to the fully grown tree.
