Report Overgrown Trees that Threaten Power Lines

Please use the form below to alert us of a tree you believe may be growing too close to one of our power lines or may present a hazard to the lines. An Appalachian Power representative will examine the situation and, if the problem cannot wait for the next scheduled maintenance, we will schedule the required work as soon as possible. Overall, it is our objective to provide safe and reliable electric service. It is not Appalachian Power's responsibility to protect private or public property from falling trees or limbs.

CAUTION: For your safety, please do not work on trees near power lines.

Trees interfering with electric utility lines are pruned or removed around the Appalachian Power system - neighborhood by neighborhood. Appalachian Power does not charge customers when performing this maintenance. Faster growing species may require removal or more clearance from the electric line than slower growing species. We trim trees according to standards set forth by the Tree Care Industry Association and the International Society of Arboriculture.

Appalachian Power only trims trees that are growing too close to company lines - the lines that run from pole to pole. The company does not trim trees that are threatening to interfere with your service drop (the line that runs from our pole to your house). You are responsible for trees close to your service drop (line from the pole to your house). When you are ready to trim the tree, give us two days' notice and we'll safely disconnect the service drop for you.
