My system is on an 18 month trim cycle, trimming 4-6 feet of clearance on all primary conductors. We were directed by our City Commissioners to use a TGR, which we have been doing. My question is this. How do we get the maximum regulation from the product when it takes 18 months or so for the TGR to actually begin working and we trim the trees every 18 months.
