About Tree Trimming

Trees Compromise Power Line Safety and Reliability

Safety

  • Our commitment to safety is why we discourage members and untrained contractors from pruning trees near power lines
  • Georgia Right of Way, our contractor, uses trained personnel to safely prune or remove trees around our power lines
  • If you are planning to remove or trim a tree near our lines or if you spot a tree which may endanger the lines, report it by calling us at (800) 282-3824
  • Don’t allow children to climb trees near power lines

Reliability

  • Right-of-Way trimming helps prevent power outages by maintaining a safe distance between trees and power lines
  • In compliance with national standards, we prune or remove trees that threaten your electric service
  • By allowing open access for repair crews and vehicles, proper clearance helps us to restore power faster during an outage
