Trees, power grids and planning

Every year, history repeats itself, especially in the summer, when it rains and winds hard here in the city of São Paulo.

Trees fall on electrical grids causing accidents and financial losses associated with interruptions in the power supply for many hours to homes, businesses and industries.

Since I'm a kid, it's always been the same situation.

Perhaps, one day, leaders of the Public Power (Executive, Legislative and Judiciary) will discover that preventing this recurrent situation, using the established practices of good engineering, are much more economical and efficient for the whole society.

Or is this just wishful thinking?
