Report Tree Problem

If you believe a tree is growing too close to one of our power lines, we can assess the situation and determine if the tree needs attention before the next scheduled trimming. This form can also be used to report an issue relative to recently completed tree work. 


  • Maintain wires on a scheduled basis only.
  • Review trees for selective pruning and removal - Work is completed around wires only.
  • Clean up debris during normal maintenance. Will chip all the branches and rake the work area, but will leave wood over 4 inches in diameter for homeowners use or disposal.
  • Treat trees and brush with herbicides to control unwanted vegetation.
  • Make every reasonable attempt to notify the property owner that the work will be completed. Although we do not seek permission to do the trimming we do try, where possible, to involve the property owner.
  • Trim for streetlight illumination or private outdoor area lights.
  • Remove, on occasion, a tree outside of a right-of-way if a member makes a request. If this is the case, please mark the tree with a color ribbon, paint, etc. This will help CEC understand which specific tree the member wants removed. 


  • Clean up debris during storm work.  The priority is removing limbs from the wires and we do not clean up the debris.
  • Prune trees for private contractors without determining first whether or not to issue a charge based on the circumstances.
  • Prune trees for phone or cable lines.

Please Do Not Plant Near Power Lines
Tress, and other vegetation, planted too close to power lines grow into a big problem. To prevent power outages and safety hazards, CEC will cut all vegetation on CEC right-of-ways. To learn more about proper planting near power lines, please click here

Tree Removal
If a member would like a tree removed and the tree is located between a utility pole and the member’s home, we will need to disconnect the service. The homeowner will be responsible for the actual tree removal. Please call us for specific details about your tree and power lines.
