Local electric utility has. Elected to cut down two trees on

Customer Question

Local electric utility has. Elected to cut down two trees on our property that are 50' from the center of of their high tension lines which runs across the back of our property. Do we have any recourse to pursue to prevent this? Also, are they responsible to remove the stumps? Do they owe us for adverse diminished value to our property?

What is the width of the utility easement? Are the trees within it? Why cut them down? Why not have them trimmed to less than 50' high so they can't fall into the lines?
