2023 Tree-Trimming Program Underway
Notice to our customers: Davey Tree Surgery to trim trees along power lines in Wahkiakum County from June 6th through mid-August, 2023.
Public Utility District No. 1 of Wahkiakum County has kicked off its 2023 tree-trimming program with plans to clear vegetation along its power lines in Wahkiakum County to help enhance electric service reliability for customers.
Maintaining proper clearances and removing dead or diseased trees around electrical equipment can help reduce the frequency and duration of power outages, especially those associated with severe weather. Clearing vegetation under power lines also gives utility personnel easier access to inspect and maintain lines and make repairs quicker if an outage occurs.
Work will be performed along distribution power lines throughout Wahkiakum County. The vegetation management work is conducted by Davey Tree Surgery.
