Trees that grow near power lines can be dangerous and cause power outages. In fact, trees are involved in nearly 30 percent of all power outages. To prevent dangerous situations and avert outages, Consumers Energy trims and removes trees on a regular, rotating schedule. For more information, visit http://www.consumersenergy.com/forestry
This video was shot at around 12:30pm CST on April 4, 2011 after a severe weather event in Memphis, TN. This is on Poplar Pines Drive right off of Poplar Avenue. Right next to Papa Johns and TCBY between Massey and Kirby. Immediately following this video, the transformer blew and shot sparks everywhere while I was directly underneath it in my car. The fire went out as soon as the line lost power. Definitely not something you see everyday. This video was uploaded from an Android phone.
The high voltage power line was sparking all night, the lightning was attacking this palm tree whenever the wind blew it close enough. Sparks and flames danced across the palm fronds until it could stand no more.
Due to popular demand, Part 2 of "How not to cut down a Rotten Tree": A rotting tree was leaning badly against some other trees and we decided we better cut it down before it came down on its own. This is clearly not the way to solve the "rotten tree leaning into another tree" problem. But it worked. If anyone knows what we should have done please comment. Don't forget to watch part 1.
