158. Terribly sorry, but your options are non-existant.
You have no right to plant trees in the utility easement or expect that they will remain unmolested.

Its unfortunate, but it is life.

We expect the utility company to provide us uninterrupted power,and part of providing that is to clear potential hazards from the easements on a regular basis. Your May Day tree was deemed a threat to the lines and an arborist said the only way to remove the threat was to cut down the tree.

May this be a lesson to everyone: plant your ornamental trees away from utility easements. Plant slow growing trees or small plants in the easement.
