Ghanaians have been advised to be cautious of where they plant trees, in order not to interfere with electrical installations. The Volta/Oti Regional Manager of the Electricity Company of Ghana, Mr. Emmanuel Lumor, said while the country is geared towards planting millions of trees.

He said under the Green Ghana Project, people should avoid planting trees directly under electric poles, especially those that could grow very tall and touch the poles.

During the nationwide tree planting exercise in the Volta region, Mr. Lumor explained that trees are conductors and therefore “when they touch the electricity lines, they could go off, give shock or damage equipment and affect lives.

According to him, the government’s tree planting initiative is very important to the company, and for that matter it had decided to join by planting a large number of trees.

As part of its contribution towards the exercise, the company’s eleven districts in the Volta/Oti regions, have been directed to plant a total of 6, 000 trees to green the environment.

The ECG said after the tree planting exercise, workers have been directed to plant four trees in replacement of any tree lost to the company’s activities.
