Here in our area of Florida and elsewhere too I imagine, they prune trees, including giant old "live oaks" (Why they are called live oaks I've no idea!) without cutting the power. They use cherry pickers and I imagine the buckets are all plastic so the workers are not grounded.

What's fascinating, and we have a lot of it at the moment here in our part of Florida, is seeing them replace old wooden ("telegraph poles" but carrying live high voltage power lines) with new ones along side them including switching the live power lines from insulators on the old poles to insulators on the new poles. Sometimes a couple of workers up there at the same time.
