Plant Smart to Avoid Tree Trimming

Spring is a great time to plant new trees. NES reminds customers to be smart about where you plant, especially near power lines. It may be hard to visualize the height and spread of a tree at its maturity. That’s why NES has created a Right Tree Right Place guide to help you select the right trees for your planting location to prevent tree trimming in the future.

We’ve also compiled a list of trees that are safe to plant a distance of 10 feet from overhead lines.
