A new method of trimming trees to prevent them from knocking down high-voltage power lines during storms has come to the Mansfield area. Ohio Edison is starting to use helicopters with long blades to trim trees, with the first demonstration Wednesday at the Ohio State University-Mansfield campus. Pilot Jeff Schiltz says it's just like any helicopter ride, except it efficiently helps prevent power failures. Using the helicopter to trim trees at OSU-Mansfield also serves as an ecology lesson for students, showing how the flying saw can be more beneficial than traditional tree-trimming methods.
