Removal of Problem Trees

Removal of Problem Trees

properly pruned trees

Trees and power lines can co-exist, if the trees can be properly pruned & maintained (like above).  However many trees are known as "cyclebusters" which cannot be effectively maintained.  Wayne-White Counties Electric Cooperative continues to agressively approach the removal of problem & hazard trees.  "Cyclebuster" trees are the greatest risk to your reliable electric service.  WWCEC also utilizes mechanical equipment for clearing our system along the right-of-way by removing trees & brush in remote and rural areas.

We are actively removing as many "cyclebuster" trees (that grow back into the lines in less than 4 years after pruning) from our right-of-way as we can.  The removal of these trees will also improve system reliability.  We offer some tree removal incentives to members that own these "cyclebuster" trees.
