Tree Trimming Is Underway
Managing vegetation is a critical part of Salem Electric’s ability to deliver safe and reliable electric service. We appreciate the beauty and environmental impact trees provide; however, it is vital to protect the electrical system from hazards that threaten reliability and safety, and we are required by the Oregon Public Utility Commission to meet requirements for minimum clearance between trees and power lines.
Over the next few months, crews may be trimming in your neighborhood. If you have questions regarding our tree maintenance program, or if you would like to report a tree that has grown into the primary power lines, please contact us at 503-362-3601 or send us a tree trimming request.
