Our arborists and pre-inspectors survey circuits for potentially
hazardous trees that may impact or interfere with the utility line. We evaluate line clearance to ensure
regulatory compliance. This data is then organized for the utility company to prioritize an action plan to
prevent potential hazards.
UPE Resources has implemented a two-step process when a potentially hazardous tree is located on private property. First, our Pre-Inspector attempts to make contact with the property owner. We require a written authorization from the property owner that details the prescribed work to alleviate any miscommunication regarding the work to be completed. If the pre-inspector is unable to obtain authorization for any reason, our next step is to have a trained Notification Consultant follow up for further clarification and resolution. This two-step method also ensures the pre-inspector continues on task and schedule.
