We strive to make the tree trimming procedure as pleasant as possible. Trees are a part of nature we all value, which is why BCREMC employs a certified arborist and utility specialist so we do it right. We trim trees to provide safe and reliable electric service to you and your neighbors. When trees are touching power lines, it is a reliability and safety issue. Electricity can arc from the wires to the trees, energizing the trees. State law mandates that we maintain our lines and keep them hazard free. Tree trimming is a necessary part of providing reliable electric service to your home or business.
