Right-of-Way Program

Trees are a valuable asset in commercial, residential and public landscapes for many reasons. They add beauty, help the environment and give value to the property. However, these same trees can be a challenge for Woodruff Electric Cooperative. Trees are one of the major causes of power outages in areas with overhead utility lines. When trees contact live wires they may become conductors of electricity and cause power outages or create dangerous situations for anyone coming in contact with them.

The image below has a circled area that represents the location where Woodruff Electric’s contract tree trimming crews are working in October of 2020.

Our primary goal at Woodruff Electric is to provide safe and reliable power to our membership. Maintaining an ongoing right-of-way program is an important part to reaching that goal. We clear the right-of-way using the safest and most efficient methods to ensure adequate and safe distance from trees and other vegetation.
