We Trim Trees for Safety
Overgrown trees or limbs near power lines can pose a serious danger to
unsuspecting children or adults who could come in contact with a live power
line while climbing a tree.
Appropriate vegetation clearance on the power lines allows for much safer
access by personnel during any restoration effort. By maintaining this
clearance, we can restore customer power much more safely and efficiently.
Power lines can carry up to 34,500 volts and can be deadly. Never touch an
electrical wire; always assume it is conducting electricity and is dangerous.
If you are planning to trim or remove a tree near any power or service line,
please contact us at 1-800-ENTERGY (1-800-368-3749) or via the "Contact
Us" page of this Web site. Trained personnel can identify potential
reliability or safety threats and advise you what can be done.
