Utility Arborist

About the Job

Utility Arborists (aka Electrical Foresters, Utility Tree Trimmers) prune, fell and remove vegetation that is near energized power lines and associated electrical equipment in urban, rural and off-road sites. They also apply, or oversee the application of, herbicides to control vegetation. Their work is performed from the ground or an aerial device, or by climbing trees. These services, which are provided as part of a utility’s vegetation management program or post-storm clean-up, are essential to maintaining and restoring power for communities across Canada.
