What is Clay Electric's system for tree removal?

Pre-cycle Maintenance Program Clay Electric inspects each circuit on a yearly cycle for hazardous trees and conditions.  Trees that are severely leaning, dead, decayed, or otherwise hazardous to the power lines are classified as "danger trees." Dead and danger trees are topped below the lines or cut down systematically on a scheduled cycle.  Trees that threaten to endanger the power lines are cut, or cut down to a height that will not threaten our power lines and left on the job site.

Request for Tree Removal: Clay Electric will cut down green trees that are directly below the power lines in our rights-of-way or so close to the power lines that they require drastic pruning. The limbs will be chipped and hauled away. The tree trunk and larger limbs will be cut into whatever lengths the tree’s owner desires or firewood size and left on-site.

Clay Electric will cut danger trees that are adjacent to our power lines along the edge of the right-of-way. In improved areas such as yards, the dead and danger trees will be cut down and cut up into manageable lengths and left on-site. In unimproved areas such as woods, the dead and danger trees will be cut or cut down to a height whereas to not have any threat to our power lines and left as is on-site.

Clay Electric reserves the right to refuse to cut or remove any tree which, in its judgment, can be safely cut or removed by a private tree company with no damage to our lines.
