Right of Way Maintenance
The cooperative’s right-of-way maintenance plan is an important part of providing reliable service.
We have comprehensive vegetation management programs that include trimming trees and controlling plant growth near power lines in three-year, industry-standard cycles.
The trimming includes trees in an area up to 15 feet on either side of power lines. If you plant trees within that area, be aware that they may be cut back or removed to keep them away from our lines.
Tree trimming professionals contracted by NineStar Connect will perform all tree trimming. These crews are equipped with modern tree trimming equipment and are trained in the latest ANSI A300 pruning standards.
NineStar Connect Lineman have on occasions trimmed trees in the event of an emergency or an outage situation. They will continue to do so, in efforts to provide reliable electric service.
