Answer: I'd tend to plant large shrubs rather than trees if the planting area is directly beneath power lines. If tree branches come too close to the lines, the power company will trim them back and you'll end up with a lopsided tree. Tall, dense shrubs such as Laurel, Escallonia, Abelia, Dodonaea (hop bush), Ilex (holly) or Viburnum tinus will make effective hedges and give you the bonus of seasonal flowers. Hope one of these suggestions works for you!
