RIGHT TREE, RIGHT PLACE
Working with SCE to keep your yard green, and safe. SCE is mandated by the state’s Public Utilities Commission to trim trees, and hire qualified line-clearance arborists who do this. Each year, these crews trim over 750,000 trees at a cost of $28 million. Depending on the type of tree and how quickly it grows, the crews trim it in a fashion that will best ensure the tree does not threaten safety or electrical reliability during that time. Call SCE if you have concerns about trees in this right-of-way. If you wish to trim a tree growing around the power line that runs from the pole to your house, or want to have it trimmed by a professional contractor, please contact SCE two days before you plan to trim — if you have any concerns, linemen may de-energize and safely move these pole-to-house power lines out of the way so there is no risk of your coming into contact with them, or of branches falling into them. When you are working in your yard and in proximity to power lines, please be careful — especially when carrying tall, aluminum ladders, pool skimmers or metal picking or pruning equipment. Also, please teach children to be careful — about releasing metallic balloons or flying kites that may come into contact with power lines, and about climbing or playing in trees near or touching wires. Tree houses should not be built within 20 feet of power lines.
