Xcel Energy Hates Trees!
Apparently, Xcel Energy hates trees! And their hatred is so obvious that a judge has put up a temporary injunction to keep them from ripping out some forest land. “Xcel had argued that clear-cutting was necessary to prevent trees from touching the lines, which could start fires or cause a blackout.
“El Paso County District Judge G. David Miller ruled that other methods, such as pruning, could also ensure safety.”
