184. According to Alaska rules the easement is 30'.
If the tree was anywhere within 30' of the power line, it's in the easement.

Considering I can SEE the power line in the second picture in the OP, I would assume that it's within 30'

As for the arborist, I was referencing standard procedures of the utility I live in,and the one my FIL worked for.

If they didn't consult an arborist it doesn't really matter. If it was within 30' of the line, it's in the easement. This isn't that difficult.

My point about it being a lesson is for anyone else planting trees, not necessarily the OP. I didn't plant the trees AEP cut down last spring, but I knew when I moved in they were encroaching.

Like I said, the whole thing is unfortunate, but necessary.
