Never cut trees near power lines

A graphic woodland scene shows a person using a chainsaw to cut down trees with a powerline in the background.

Trimming trees or cutting firewood can be dangerous activities with serious safety risks – especially if you’re near a power line. Cutting trees near power lines can also damage electrical equipment and cause outages for customers.

If you see a tree on or near a powerline, never try to trim it or remove it yourself. Stay back and call us at 1-888-737-1296.
