Andrea, do they use proper pruning techniques?  Many, maybe most in this area 
the tree was not properly placed so the power company has little choice.  
Power companies in our area now send their people to ISUs Shade Tree Short Course 
to train them but now we must train the tree planters.  Our local city tree 
board is responsible for that.
    We have an ash tree across the street which was planted within 8' of a 
street light.  Not a problem when it was 6' high but now it is 20' or more and  
the street light is hidden in the canopy.  I requested the power company trim 
the tree because our area was so dark. They refused.  A few days later the 
tree branches knocked the light cover off and I called again and suggested a trim 
may save a personal injury lawsuit.  It was promptly trimmed but it rqd 
cutting into the center of the tree, ruined the appearance but the prune job 
followed the guidelines. Fortunately other utilities are underground.
