Trees add beauty to our communities and provide much needed shade, but they also create serious dangers when not properly maintained. All state utilities are required by law to clear brush and debris from primary electrical power lines to:
Prevent electrocution during a storm or accident
Reduce the risk of fire
Prevent unnecessary power outages
If you are concerned about a tree in the power lines, you can call this number to request an inspection: 1-800-411-7343

For your safety, never attempt to trim trees near high-voltage lines yourself
Our crews work year-round to keep poles clear of vegetation and create 10-foot firebreaks around poles with certain connectors. Although we prefer to conduct brush clearing, we know that some customers prefer to do the work themselves. We’ll work with you to ensure that your efforts meet regulations.
