The City of Statesville Electric Utilities maintains a tree trimming crew that removes and trims trees and limbs that are a danger or potential danger to our electric system. Our crews are on a yearly cycle to trim all primary lines. Our goal is to trim all trees in the way or posing a potential danger to our electrical system within 9-12 months of the previous trimming. Our crews do not maintain trees on secondary lines, (service lines to houses, buildings, etc), but we are more than happy to come out and disconnect secondary lines for privately hired tree trimming crews to remove of trees in homeowner's yard. Simply call (704) 878-3419. Please give 24-48 hours notice.
