The Electric Distribution Department, in its effort to ensure quality and continuity of electrical service, performs tree trimming throughout the year. Tree limbs falling into overhead distribution lines can cause safety hazards and power outages. The City of Wayne trims trees away from such lines to ensure public safety and reliable electric service.
The Distribution staff has training on the proper tree trimming techniques to ensure that there is no damage to the tree, but also giving maximum conductor clearance. Sometimes trimming will be done without notification, such as in an emergency, power outage, and storm situations where the crews on site deem that trimming and/or removing a tree will ensure the safety to all and help in the restoration of power.
If you have any questions about tree trimming contact us by email or call (402) 375-2896.
