Basic maintenance has fallen way behind, most of which is tree trimming. In the Columbus suburb I live in some trees have literally grown around power lines to the point that when the trees get trimmed part of the tree is stuck on the power lines. Once every seven year routine maintenance has become more like fix it when it breaks using contractors.
