Pattaya workers pruned trees on South Road to prevent power outages and fires.

A basket truck made its way down the busy street Feb. 23 with workers cutting back branches close to power and utility lines.

Residents had complained they feared the trees would bring down power lines in a storm or spark a fire.

Traffic was slowed for a few hours during the work.
