Pole Stub Removal

Double poles create additional safety concerns for workers and the general public. They are unsightly and may cause unnecessary customer complaints. Some states have laws requiring pole removal within a certain timeframe.

Double wood poles can add increased strain on pole owners. Osmose crews are trained and certified to safely pull old poles. 

  • Set-up safe work zone (including required traffic management)
  • Inspect the pole
  • Locate UG facilities (hand excavate up to five feet if necessary)
  • Address any obstacles to removal
  • Remove pole using hydraulic jack
  • Remove any and all hardware (including all risers - electric, telephone, and CATV)
  • Load and haul poles
  • Site Restoration (haul dirt and backfill around the pole)
