Northeastern REMC maintains nearly 1000 miles of overhead high voltage electric lines throughout its six county service areas. A majority of our power lines are within wooded areas, requiring some type of vegetation management. This consists of trimming, re-clearing, or both, to maintain safe, uninterrupted service to you and your neighbors.
Every year power outages and blinks are caused by storms and strong winds that bring trees or limbs in contact with lines. It is important to allow Northeastern trim or even cut down trees near primary power lines and within easements if needed. If you have a tree that is near a power line that you want trimmed or cut down, call 1-888-413-6111 to arrange a time for us to come out and see if we can assist you with the project. Do NOT attempt to trim trees yourself that are growing near distribution lines or your service line. Doing so can put you at risk of deadly shock.
