Tree Trimming Request


The Board of Light & Power has a Utility Tree Clearance Department that maintains clearance around its overhead distribution lines in accordance with industry standards. Tree trimming on the Board of Light & Power rights-of-way is ongoing throughout the year.

If a trimming project involves the complete removal of a tree, the tree trimming crew will attempt to discuss the project with available property representatives prior to completing the project.

If you see a potential problem with power lines becoming tangled in tree limbs, please call our customer service center at 616-846-6250 or complete and submit the form below. A service worker will investigate and schedule any necessary trimming.
