“Road Wood” Ownership

Hydro One has been brushing, trimming and cutting trees along all hydro lines in Shawano and area. By the beginning of July, 2015 the work may be complete in this immediate area.

BUT, who owns the wood left on private property and on the road allowance in front of private property ? The answer —– the property owner owns this wood. Individuals wanting this wood must receive permission from the property owner(s) before cutting and removing any wood.  It’s the law.
