While trees add significantly to the beauty of our communities, they are also responsible for costly property damage as well as dangerous power outages. In fact, tree failure is by far the leading cause of outages nationwide. A tree that grows into electrical conductors presents a potential hazard to you and others in the community if it becomes energized or wipes out a power line.
We send letters to landowners prior to clearing rights of ways and encourage our members to call us with special needs or concerns.
We've created a video to show the process and to give members a better understanding of how and why we clear right of ways.
