Providing you with safe and reliable electricity is a priority at UPPCO. That’s why we have a proactive tree trimming program.

Trees growing into power lines can cause issues with your electric service. To prevent that, we trim trees every six years in residential areas and every five, six, or eight years in rural areas.

Despite our hard work, trees and branches can still cause power outages — especially during storms.

If you have a tree that has grown into or has fallen onto power lines, stay away and call us at 800-562-7680 or 906-449-2013. A tree limb in contact with an electric line is extremely dangerous and life threatening.
