Keeping trees and plants away from electrical transformers is critical in order to allow line workers safe access to equipment during an outage. If you have questions about tree pruning or tree replacement in zones close to power lines, MTE has trained professionals to help you called Vegetation Management Specialists. They are certified arborists familiar with a wide variety of tree species and proper pruning practices and coordinate actual tree-pruning efforts performed by contractors hired throughout the MTE service area. Most importantly, they’re here to serve members with information and explanations about our vegetation management program. To contact them, call (877) 414-7685, e-mail VegetationManagement@mtemc.com, or contact using the form.
Our tree and vegetation team works with members, the environment, and the needs of our electric system to create a balanced and proactive approach to rights-of-way maintenance. We’ve compiled some of the most frequent questions related to our tree and vegetation management practices.
