Default Re: Newbie questions - planting design and types for 9a

Under-story trees & bushes within 10ft of each side of the Line would be limited to a maximum height of 5ft to 10ft (15ft to 20ft line height). Dwarf banana plants are 8ft to 9 ft at the pstem crown plus 4ft to 6 ft of leaves for a total height of 12ft to 15ft. ... Are you saying the Power Company is OK with 3ft to 5 ft safety clearance of the power line? .... If they are, get it in WRITING. .... My Power Company paid me $4500 damages for spraying 30 plus mature banana trees in 2016 which were not within 10ft of the line. Mature banana plants are worth $200 each. .... Oh, the minimum height of a power line is 18ft at the lowest point. Usually lines are 20ft to 22ft above ground.
