In my state, several years ago, the 2 power generators asked (told) the government they had to protect/ preserve the hi power lines across the state as well as have access for repair trucks in case of an emergency. Decorative spruce over 4' tall were back hoed out, fences were cut out or a legal paper issued to provide removable gates to give 9' access, gardens were bull dozed.
My buddy lost 20 arbor vitae below the posted height (on his legal property) because they would grow over the limit in 5 years.
The land below power lines is Not the property owners but a right of way for the power company. Yeah, it went to court and several judges decided in favor of the power company (the Greater Good argument)

So I am going to say PG&E power has been siting on it's hands instead of clearing brush and trees. They have the Right to maintain the right of way for the power lines but have not done it.

Now they are shutting off whole lines instead of maintaining their access.

Lets open out eyes and not make excuses
