During these unprecedented times, essential tree trimming work is more important than ever to avoid outages that could disrupt critical services. Not all tree work requires property owner or abutter consent, however, if consent is required, please respond if one of our qualified tree contractors, working on behalf of Eversource, emails or calls you to work on or near your property. The contractor will not knock on your door, however, the representative may leave a door hanger with more information.
Note: Requests for non-emergency tree trimming are suspended in accordance with our response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Why Eversource Trims Trees
Here in New England, tree limbs and branches are the leading cause of power outages. Improved electric system safety and reliability are the result of a strong vegetation management program here at Eversource. Find out how we work throughout the year to ensure safe, reliable electric service while employing thoughtful and professional tree-trimming around our power lines.
Plan Before You Plant
Trees and power lines don’t mix. When they touch, it can cause everything from power outages, fires and downed lines, to safety hazards for people, wildlife, and even the trees themselves.
