Long-term Solutions

Look up before you plant! Before you invest in a tree that will grow tall, look around the area where you intend to plant. Carefully match the tree species with the location. Trees with mature heights over 25 feet should be planted at least 25 feet from any overhead utility lines.

The reliability of your neighborhoods’ electric service may depend on your choice of trees and where you plant them. Your cooperation with BrightRidge’s Right-of-Way Program is essential. Reliable service, public safety, and customer satisfaction are very important to us as your power provider. We will not trim or remove any tree unless it poses a threat to either public safety or electric service reliability. Help us, help you. Please look up before you plant!
