33    Tree Trimming.


Where overhead wires pass through trees, safety and reliability of service demand that a reasonable amount of tree trimming be done in order that the wires may clear branches and foliage.


Trees so located that they can fall into a crossing span or into any span that could communicate the trouble to a crossing span shall be removed wherever practicable.
