Vegetation Management

At KUB, we love an East Tennessee view and the trees that make it possible. 

That's why we put so much care and effort into our Vegetation Management Program. Since more than 50 percent of power outages are vegetation-related, pruning is an essential part of excellent reliability.

We maintain more than 5,000 miles of electric line and prune along approximately 1,000 miles of that line every year.

KUB is a certified Arbor Day Foundation Tree Line Utility and prunes according to the foundation's high-quality standards.
