Planting Trees

Trees and other plants beautify our communities and contribute to a healthy living environment. However, careful consideration must be given to balance the need for electrical safety and a reliable supply of electricity with the interest we all share in maintaining and enhancing the urban forest canopy.

Before you decide on the location of new trees, you should consider the location of overhead and underground power lines. Trees near overhead power lines need to be trimmed to provide safe clearance and maintain reliability. Underground, tree roots can also create problems when they grow close to buried power lines or underground equipment.

Let us help you plant the right tree in the right place so you can enjoy the tree and its growth for many years to come.
