Occasionally, REC encounters trees that do not threaten cooperative-owned power lines or equipment, but may present an electrical hazard should the owner try and remove the tree themselves. In such cases REC will evaluate the conditions and may assist the owner by de-engergizing power lines, taking power lines down or other options. REC reserves the right in its sole discretion, to choose the best option for the cooperative. Safety around electrical equipment is our largest concern. Even if we don't perform your tree cutting work, please let us assist you with the project if power lines could be contacted in any way!
