Tree Maintenance

To comply with the National Electric Safety Code, utilities must trim or remove trees growing near power lines that threaten to disrupt service. Proper and regular tree trimming helps prevent the danger and inconvenience of outages.

Tree trimmers try to preserve as much of a tree’s beauty as possible while providing enough clearance between limbs and lines to assure safe and reliable electric service. Paducah Power System’s tree crews follow arboricultural standards when trimming. Crew members will only remove a tree from your property when it poses a significant hazard to the power lines. Our Trade-A-Tree program provides customers with a $50 voucher from a local nursery for a tree that qualifies for removal. For more info on Trade-A-Tree, Contact Brian Thomasson at 270-575-4012.

Only qualified line clearance workers are allowed to work near high voltage lines. Contact Paducah Power System at 270-575-4010 to report a tree growing into a power line. Homeowners are responsible for keeping limbs off of the service lines that are between the house and the pole. During normal working hours, Paducah Power System will disconnect electrical service during tree trimming, at no charge for the customer’s safety.
