Our Current Council Clients Include

Vegetation Management Around The Electrical Network

Maintaining safe clearances around the electrical network is essential for providing public safety and a reliable electrical supply to our homes. Most blackouts are caused by tree branches contacting the electrical network.
AUTS maintains a systematic approach to ensuring that the vegetation in our contract areas is providing the best outcomes to our clients and the residential power consumers.
AUTS works closely with local Councils and community groups to provide information regarding our pruning program. Councils in turn, provide important information regarding prominent tree specimens in the local area and we actively encourage open communication to resolve individual issues.
