Wow! Clint wants a whole bunch of beurocracy involved in removing trees around power lines! First of all the power companies do not burn lumber for electricity! Those power lines are vulnerable during thunder storms and having not only trees but a lot of foliage around them presents a hazard in event of lightening strikes! Common sense must prevail! The power companies not only own the lines but land on either side of those lines and by law are required to keep that area clean and accessible by their own vehicles and emergency vehicles if need be! Enforce the laws that are on the books already by federal and state laws! But to get permission from the EPA, Dept of Interior, Bureau of Land Management, National Parks! Why don't you include the UN and NASA! Oh yeah you forgot NOAH! How about getting FEMA involved too! Let's all be goofy! The power companies are required NOW by Federal and State law to keep areas by so many feet around their lines to be cut back and clean! Ok?
