Tree Trimming

Lineman clearing tree for right-of-wayWe no longer trim and shape “yard trees” under service drops (transformer to meter). We will only trim a 3-foot circle around the service conductor. Also, we will no longer remove trees (dead or alive) under or around the service conductor. If the consumer needs to remove a tree(s), we will send a crew out to drop the service wire while the tree(s) are being removed and then reinstall the wire.

We will continue to trim or remove trees that are in danger of contacting the primary line (7200 volts) which includes trees within 40 feet of the Right-of-Way easement.

If you have trees that need to be trimmed or removed, please complete and submit the permission form below.
