Right Tree, Right Place
Our tree trimming practices balance the importance trees have on the environment with providing safe, reliable electric service.
By planting the right tree in the right place, you can help preserve your community’s trees while also serving utility customers.
Consider the Following When Selecting a Tree
- Height. Will it come within 10 feet of power lines when it’s fully grown?
- Canopy spread. How wide will the tree grow?
- Growth rate. A slow growing-species is typically stronger and lives longer than fast-growing species.
- Form or shape. A columnar tree grows in less space. Round or V-shaped trees provide more shade.
