Trees that fall or grow into power lines can cause outages and be a serious hazard to people. To prevent tree-related outages and accidents, we provide property owners and professional tree workers with a broad range of helpful information and services. Our Vegetation Management Program reduces wildfire risk and electrical outages and wildfire risks, helping improve the safety and reliability of our service to you.
