The Electric Distribution Department, in its effort to ensure quality and continuity of electrical service, performs tree trimming throughout the year to protect overhead transmission lines from potential damage.
The Distribution staff
has training on the proper tree trimming techniques to ensure that there is no damage to the tree, but also giving maximum conductor clearance. Staff will try to contact property owners before any trimming takes place.
Sometimes trimming will be done without notification, such as in an emergency, power outage, and storm situations where the crews on site deem that trimming and/or removing a tree will ensure the safety to all and help in the restoration of power.
If you have any questions about tree trimming contact us by email
or call (402) 375-2896.
