Thank you, that never occured to me. I checked and it looks like I am OK. "Utility friendly" under-story trees can be planted within 5 feet of a power line. Since I have switched from trying to get a blue java to all dwarf varieties my plants are short enough to plant here.

Also locating your plant so they will get some shading from the blistering afternoon sun helps.
I have an oak tree that should cast shade on the area in the afternoon, hopefully it will help.

Thank you again!
