Every orchard is vital to the economic health of our state. We work to make sure every resource is going into improving the health of your orchard. By taking safe and effective measures, you’re playing an important role in helping your community.
Get the most from your land and operations by understanding where trees and transmission lines are incompatible and avoiding the areas when planting. Following the right steps up front can protect your investment for years to come.
Reach out to us early in your orchard planning process so we can identify power line friendly planting locations near transmission lines. We'll help walk you through the steps and schedule a visit to your orchard to flag any incompatible areas.
Help us provide safe and reliable power to the 16 million Northern and Central California residents who rely on it.
We work with orchard growers to maintain safe distances between trees and high-voltage power lines. To ensure that these safety clearances are maintained and to abide by federal and state laws, we created the Mature Orchard Incentive Program for Transmission Lines. Through incentives, it encourages orchard growers to remove nut-bearing trees under transmission lines.
*This incentive offer is available for a limited time on a first-come, first-served basis.
Growers can use the incentive to replant crops that are compatible with electric transmission lines or reinvest the funds according to their needs.
