How to measure the safe planting distance
WARNING! Never let yourself or anything else (a tape measure, a tool, scaffolding or construction materials, etc.) come within three metres of a medium-voltage line.
Distances for distribution lines
The suggestions provided by the guide apply only to trees located near medium-voltage distribution lines. They do not apply to high-voltage transmission lines.
