Samandothers said "I hope this is a good thing, and if so congratulations." which I can reply, thank you, and yes it is a good thing to be retiring after 41 years with this outfit.  I like my work but it is time to move on.

I'm a life-long learner.  That's why I made sure to start out real dumb!

The crap hit the fan a number of years ago here with the tree trimming. The power co hadn't done it in decades. 
Lots of ugly trees when they left, no choice with the neglect of keeping the lines clear.

Yes, power outages are much fewer now.

The utility has been clearing lines the last 4 years here, but only select locations. I never could fathom clearing lines for two remote houses back in the woods 8 miles and neglecting to touch a road that has never been cleared for at least 30 years (cut one of the trees and count rings). We have ash by the thousands  the height of the poles as well as elm and apple trees with 1000 branches into the wires. If it weren't for farmers, it would be a lot worst, keeping ditches cleared and end of fields bush hogged and mowed. I guess low farm tax rate means keep the road cleared. :D Now skidding firewood down the pavement isn't in the contract. ;D

Most tree crews up here are pretty good.
Yup.  That's the story here as well.  The fellows who work for Ontario Hydro out in these parts have been around for a while and they're very well paid and certainly not overworked.  So they take their time and do the "door-knock-have-a-talk".
The worst butcher job I've seen on easement trees is in Cornwall, about half an hour south of here.  Man, it's enough to make  clear-cutter cry.
Robin Hood had it just about right:  as long as a man has family, friends, deer and beer...he needs very little government!
