We trim what we legally can.
We want you to know that we trim every tree and branch legally available to us in our right-of-ways in an effort to prevent outages. We can only trim those and the trees that property owners allow us to trim. If you’ve declined our request to trim your trees in the past, we invite you to change your mind.
We have two full-time, year-round tree trimming crews, plus more contract arborists that we call on for additional help, as we did during this outage restoration. We also have a very deliberate plan for tree trimming - it is not done randomly, but by design. More questions about trees and power lines? Check out our Tree Trimming center here.
