Everyone knows that trees beautify our landscape and improve property values, but when they are planted in the wrong place they can cause electric service interruptions and potential safety problems. This is because they can go so tall that they contact overhead lines.

Safety problems can result if the tree damages the power line, as the tree can cause the power line to break and fall to the ground.

Before trimming trees, always look up to avoid contact with power lines. If power lines are nearby, DON'T DO THE WORK.
