Asplundh Tree Expert Co.: Beyond Clearing Branches
Alsplundh Tree Expert Co. was founded in 1928 and has headquarters in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The company is in the business of safe, efficient and innovative line clearance services to the utility industry. Basically it’s all about cutting branches or the tree itself if necessary so that the electrical power lines can continue to deliver power uninterrupted.
Yet it’s not that simple, for one the electric current continues to flow. You don’t regularly interrupt power in a particular area just to cut branches that are dangerously affecting the power lines. The safety of employees must be considered while at the same time getting the job done as schedule. Over the decades the company has developed the science and procedure to get this done.
It has done so very well as it is now one of the world’s leading tree-trimming businesses. The firm clears tree limbs from power lines for utilities and municipalities throughout the US, and in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
Asplundh has gone beyond clearing branches. It also provides utility-related services like line construction, meter reading, and pole maintenance. The firm is into billboard maintenance, traffic signal and highway lighting construction, and vegetation control for railroads and pipelines. Asplundh has really grown now employing 30,000 service professionals.
