Electrical – Vegetation management cut branch falls onto HV conductors

Earlier this year vegetation management workers were pruning private trees on behalf of a private landowner. The trees were growing inside the fence of the property and were quoted to be removed. There was an electric line on the road reserve along the front of the property. The Tree Climber was pruning a tree beside the uninsulated high voltage (HV) and low voltage (LV) conductors, a cut branch fell in an uncontrolled manner onto the HV conductors.
