Clay Electric’s management and staff recognize and appreciate that trees are valuable assets to our members' landscapes and to the quality of life in our area.  However, this must be balanced with the constant threat to our members' electric service because trees and tree branches are the most frequent causes of power outages for your co-op.  Trees adjacent to Clay Electric’s rights-of-way must be kept pruned and clear of the power lines.  This helps us provide a safe and reliable supply of electricity to our members.

There are several issues we are often questioned about concerning tree pruning, vegetation maintenance and new right-of-way clearing activities. The links below provide answers to these questions as well as valuable information about our vegetation management programs. You can also view this informational video:
