Tree Trimming

Tree Trimming

We are committed to maintaining our infrastructure in a manner that helps ensure the safety of its employees, customers, and community. Part of that commitment is trimming or removing trees that are too close to the power lines and may be likely to cause power outages or create a safety hazard.

We Trim Trees for Safety

Overgrown trees or limbs near power lines can pose a serious danger to unsuspecting children or adults who could come in contact with a live power line while climbing a tree.

Appropriate vegetation clearance on the power lines allows for much safer access by personnel during any restoration effort. By maintaining this clearance, we can restore customer power much more safely and efficiently.

Never touch an electrical wire; always assume it is conduction electricity and is dangerous.

We Trim Trees for Reliability

Storms and high winds are the leading cause of power outages. Trees that are too close to power lines can interrupt electric service, damage our infrastructure, and create dangerous situations when the lines go down.

One of the best ways to reduce interruption to electric service is by maintaining adequate clearance between power lines and trees by trimming or removing trees that are too close to the power lines. We only trim what is needed to maintain a reliable electric service.

Tree Trimming Crews

We hire professional tree-trimming contractors. They are trained in Occupational Safety & Health Administration regulations, the latest arboricultural techniques, and safety procedures. We are committed to pruning your trees professionally to maintain their health and improve reliable electric service.

Landscaping with Trees

Before you start planting, look up! Locate your power lines and make sure that what you are planting and where you are planting will not interfere with your electric service now or in the years to come. Check with your local nursery if you are unsure of how big your tree is expected to grow.
