Trimming Trees Around Power Lines

tree trimming

Asplundh will begin work the first week of August and continue through October.


Tree trimming is done for safety reasons to minimize fire hazard, help avoid power outages caused by wind and fallen limbs during winter storms, and to keep trees from growing into power lines.

Trees on private property that grow into the overhead service wires running from the pole to the house are the owner's responsibility. Never trim within 10 feet of any power line. The City will de-energize the service wire, free of charge, allowing the customer or the customer's contractor to safely clear trees or other vegetation away. To de-energize your service wires call 360-417-4724.


If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Brian Anders, Electrical Engineering Specialist II, at 360-417-4708 or banders@cityofpa.us.
