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.
For questions or comments on any of our Right of Way Clearance, Tree Trimming Programs, and schedule please contact Right-of-Way Superintendent Nick Christoph at 509-422-8435 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
