Trees that grow near power lines pose a serious safety risk. Each year, they are one of the top causes of power outages. Oncor's team of vegetation management experts, including certified arborists and line-qualified tree service providers, work diligently to ensure safe and reliable electric service.
Oncor may prune or remove trees that interfere with the reliability and integrity of electrical service within our service area. When this happens, their team follows generally accepted industry guidelines and best practices.
Property owners should never prune trees within 10 feet of a power line. Every year in Texas, people are injured and some killed when they climb or prune trees near power lines. Tree branches touching power lines conduct electricity, so be smart and get professional help.
