What trees will the Alcoa Electric Department Trim?
AED only trims trees that pose a potential hazard to primary or secondary power lines. Non-ornamental trees directly under the power lines and trees considered a danger to fall into the lines (typically dead or leaning trees) may be removed. These are normally the lines that run parallel with the street. We typically do not remove trees interfering with service wires (wires running directly from the house to a transformer), as these are the customer's responsibility.

If the tree in question poses an immediate, serious or dangerous threat to your electric system, we will be glad to send an AED representative to assess the situation. We contract with certified arborists to ensure healthy and safe pruning methods are used.
