LANDER, Wyo. -- Years ago, one of the trees on William Reed's property succumbed to Casper's high winds, tipped into a power line and caught fire.
"It didn't cause a disaster, but it didn't do any good," he said.
Reed's nine acres host up to 300 trees and four power lines. Fortunately for him, the downed-tree incident was a rarity.
Rocky Mountain Power crews visit his property every few years to trim trees near power lines.
