A Clear Right of Way Helps Keep the Lights On

Why we trim trees

In addition to trimming trees, your electric cooperative has a vegetation control plan to help keep the Right of Ways clear of brush. Not only is it important that trees do not interfere with the utility lines, our linemen must be able to access the line area. We live in the Ozarks for the beautiful, scenic land, but that can also be a hindrance if not property cleared to allow access for linemen and crews to assess outage issues and repairs when needed.
