Tree Trimming & Cleaning

Kit Carson Electric Co-op, Inc. conducts tree trimming maintenance along the right-of-way of distribution lines to provide safe and reliable electric service. This is a legal right and responsibility of the Cooperative.  The Cooperative tries to control trees growth on primary and secondary power lines at an early stage of development before they interfere with the electrical service. Keeping the trees trimmed will decrease outages due to natural growth interference. The cooperative regrets the need to cut trees, but it is hoped that members understand the need to cut or trim some of their trees or why objects in the right-of-way must be relocated. Please contact the Cooperative office before attempting to cut trees close to power lines.
