Can I prune or trim my trees myself, and does this mean OUC will no longer perform the trimming?
We encourage customers to maintain their trees before they interfere with electric lines and equipment. You should never attempt to trim any vegetation growing on or near overhead power lines. Only specially trained line-clearing professionals should work around power lines. Check your local listings to locate a contractor qualified to trim vegetation around power lines or contact OUC using the online form under Contact OUC or by calling 407-423-9018. Before work begins, be sure to verify that the contractor is licensed and insured and complies with all applicable laws, codes, ordinances and/or permits. Learn more about tree trimming.
