Company trimming trees along power lines with a helicopter
WEST MICHIGAN (NEWSCHANNEL 3) Indiana Michigan Power is conducting tree trimming in West Michigan this week with the help of a helicopter and a hanging saw.
The company says that the work is a part of its ongoing program to improve safety and reliability of electrical facilities.
A tree trimming saw is suspended beneath the helicopter by a boom that has multiple motor-powered saw blades attached.
The company says that the aerial trimming is a quick and safe way to maintain the 10 foot clearance of the right-of-way areas along the power lines.
