Trees and Power Lines

Due to an increased problem of dead and diseased trees on-reserve that may hit power lines and create power outages, Vancouver Island Tree Service will be cutting down affected trees for the months of January and February 2016.

The limbs from the trees will be removed and the remaining bucked up wood will be left on-site where it was cut.

Please Note – SFN or BC Hydro are not responsible for the remaining cut wood nor will either provide any further services associated with the cut wood.


When you see trees or branches that you feel are a danger to power lines:

Call SFN maintenance and SFN maintenance will determine if it is a Snuneymuxw issue (on SFN Lands) or a City issue

  • If it is a SFN issue then SFN will take the necessary steps to coordinate a certified / licensed tree works company to remove the danger
  • If it is not on SFN Lands then please call 1-888-769-3766 or *49376 on your mobile phone
