We Energies honored as Tree Line USA utility

We recently received our 14th consecutive Tree Line USA Utility award. Sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation in cooperation with the National Association of State Foresters, the award recognizes our efforts to provide dependable and reliable service, while using best-practice vegetation management techniques.

Tree Line USA®, recognizes public and private utilities that demonstrate practices to protect and enhance America’s urban forests. The program promotes the dual goals of safe, reliable electric service and abundant, healthy trees across utility service areas.

When tree trimming is required in residential right of way or on private property, we know that our customers take an active interest in the work being performed. We inform our customers about our forestry procedures, sending information prior to starting a trimming project. In addition, we recently produced a video that reviews our trimming practices to assist in communicating the forestry process.

Video highlights include:
  • Why we trim 
  • When we trim 
  • How our trimming process works 
  • How we communicate with customers
  • Who conducts our trimming
