Sometimes we have to trim trees around power lines to help ensure that your power and your neighbors’ power will not be interrupted.

Our Right of Way department is more affectionately known to our members as the:

  • Tree Trimming Department

Each JWEMC member agrees:

  • In the membership application to grant us a Right of Way easement
  • Giving us permission to cut and keep clear all trees within an unsafe distance from the power lines

To ensure the health of your trees, Joe Wheeler EMC uses pruning techniques that are recommended by the:

  • International Society of Arboriculture
  • American National Standards Institute
  • National Arbor Day Foundation
