You can elect to hire, at your expense, a private tree service to prune your trees. Remember: Working around power lines is extremely dangerous and should only be done by someone specially trained and qualified for that type of work.

The contractor must prune to meet KUB minimum clearance requirements. KUB crews prune to maintain a minimum 10-foot clearance between limbs and distribution lines and a minimum 25-foot clearance from high-voltage transmission lines. Crews may also remove any trees, brush, or vines that are threatening (or hindering crews’ access to) utility poles and guy wires.

If you wish to have a private service prune your trees, please contact us. A forester will provide a form for you to sign that includes the guidelines the service must follow and the date when the work must be completed.
