Home, Kan. — March 28, 2018 – Blue Valley Tele-Communications announced plans to begin trimming trees near the areal coaxial lines the first week of April. Plans are to prune overhanging branches to allow approximately three to five feet of clearance to help limit weather-related interruptions and outages. The work will begin in Waterville first and then Marysville, starting on the north side of town moving south.
“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 impacted cities,” said Novak.
