Helicopters Used for Tree Trimming Near Wires in Southeast Missouri

By Fred Harl
A helicopter crew from Aerial Solutions was working in the Farmington, MO area last week performing a necessary specialized service: trimming trees along main power lines from the air. The MD Helicopters MD-500E is the ideal utility platform for these missions, offering the lifting power and agility to maneuver along the narrow tree lines. Aerial Solutions designs, manufactures and operates their own air saw equipment from their Tabor City, NC base. Below are some views of the trimming operations from a nearby field.
