Clay Electric's Vegetation Management supports the philosophy of “The Right Tree in the Right Place” as a means of having a more attractive community to live in and a more dependable electrical system to serve its members. When you start landscaping around your home and in your yard, please look up before planting trees. Do not plant trees if power lines are overhead. If the power lines are overhead, please evaluate the species of trees you wish to plant outside of the power line right-of-way. For help in selecting tree species and to determine the distance for you to plant trees from the power line right-of-way, please click on the Landscape Planning Guide or pick one up from your local district office. We also have a pocket size version with planting guide tips for tree planting around power lines in our Keeping the Lines Clear brochure.
For more information and assistance in helping with your landscape planning near our power lines, please call Clay Electric’s Vegetation Management Division at 1-800-511-5998 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. I.S.A. Certified Arborists are on staff to assist you.
