Why is it necessary to trim trees?
The PUD is currently in the process of trimming and pruning trees within the right-of-way. This includes trees and shrubs that are interfering with overhead conductors (power lines) and/or pad mounted transformers that are a hazard to PUD infrastructure.
Asplundh Tree Expert Co. is currently contracted with the PUD to provide this service and will be trimming trees this year. Information on the schedules and areas they will be working in appear in the sidebar on the left.
The tree trimming schedule is tentative. For questions or comments on any of our Right of Way Clearance and Tree Trimming Programs please contact Right-of-Way Superintendent Nick Christoph at 509-422-8435 or email email@example.com.
