Trees and Your Service 
 
Fallen trees and branches are one of the primary causes of electric power outages. To minimize the likelihood of safety hazards and power outages, trees and vegetation must be kept clear of electric power lines.

Trees near the electric power line that runs from the main power line to a home - called a service drop - are the property owner's responsibility.

Tree Trimming
If you are concerned about tree growth near your service drop, please call 800.552.7583 to request and schedule an appointment to have your
service disconnected so you can have the trees near this line trimmed safely. We recommend that you hire a professional tree service to do your tree trimming.
  
Never attempt to prune trees near power lines yourself. Only qualified line clearance tree contractors are allowed to work within 10 feet of higher voltage lines. If you have questions, please call us at 800.552.7583.
