Trimming trees around power lines is a top safety priority at PCEA. Tom's Tree Service out of Albia is starting trimming trees for us in the Lynnville, Sully, Searsboro, and the east of Pella areas.
Trees add beauty to our landscape, provide oxygen and help conserve energy. When they grow too close to power lines, however, they can cause service disruptions or even outages. That is why branches and limbs that grow into or near lines need to be trimmed and sometimes even removed.
If you notice your trees starting to crowd power lines, do not trim them yourself. Contact Pella Cooperative Electric to help determine the next recommended step.
