Trees and Powerlines

Vegetation and trees form a key part of our urban and rural landscape and provide a wide range of aesthetic and environmental benefits and values.

There are however risks associated with trees in relation to their proximity to powerlines.

SA Power Networks delivers electricity to approximately 840,000 residential and business customers across South Australia and our network includes more than 71,000km of overhead powerlines.

SA Power Networks is required by legislation to inspect and clear vegetation from around powerlines at regular intervals of no more than three years.

Managing trees and vegetation near powerlines is critical to ensuring community safety, mitigating bushfire risk and providing a reliable and safe supply of electricity to our customers.
