BVTC to Trim Trees in Washington

March 29, 2016

Home, Kan. — March 28, 2016 – Blue Valley Tele-Communications announced plans to begin trimming trees near the areal coaxial lines on April 18. Plans are to prune overhanging branches to allow approximately three to five feet of clearance to help limit weather-related interruptions and outages.  

“We trim trees along our coaxial lines on a four to five year cycle,” said Jon Novak, project manager. “This preventative maintenance eliminates branches from rubbing against the lines and also discourages squirrels from chewing through the cables.”

BVTC has contracted Asplundh Tree Expert Company to do the work. Crews will follow all standards necessary to preserve the health and appearance of the trees. “Trees will be trimmed in accordance to the franchise and easement agreements we have with the City of Washington,” said Novak.
