A Dallas woman prefers the high life – up in a tree.
Huber was briefly successful in stopping removal of the tree after she refused to descend, but the electrical crew said they would be back with a restraining order.
This isn’t the first time Huber has taken on the man to save the trees; six years ago, she climbed another tree with a BB gun to stop Oncor, an effort which was ultimately unsuccessful and earned Huber a temporary restraining order.
In a statement from Oncor, officials explained the necessity of tree trimming “to keep local residents safe” and to “ensure reliable service to […] the city.”
The Texas electrical company was true to their word this time around, and Huber was ultimately served with a second temporary restraining order after her ascension. In an interview with CBS after she was forced out of the tree, Huber concisely expressed her concerns:
“When did we lose our rights as property owners?”
Many Houstonians can empathize with Huber, and the city is continuously working to up its commitment to go green.
