Scottish Power Energy Networks
The aim of the project was to develop scientifically based, robust and objective method to predict tree failure in severe weather conditions. Tree failure can cause significant damage to electricity supply networks. It is possible to reduce the impacts on electricity networks by felling trees that are close to power lines and at more risk of failure in severe weather conditions. This project allows a replicable and objective risk assessment of trees that are close to a power supply network, resulting in a risk value assigned to each individual tree.
