Tree Trimming & Line Clearance

Important Safety Points
Tree Trimming Program Information
Contact Customer Service

Each year, the Truckee Donner Public Utility District undertakes a line clearance/tree trimming program to trim or remove trees that are within the power line right of way.  This program is mandated by the California Department of Forestry in an attempt to help reduce the risk of fire from incidental contact between tree branches and overhead high voltage power lines. 

The Truckee Donner Public Utility District understands how important trees are to our community.  Therefore, the District and our contractor will make every effort to work with property owners to reach a mutually beneficial agreement about the proposed trimming.  The contractor who performs this work is required to have a Certified Arborist with the International Society of Arboriculture.
