When planting trees, be safe by calling 811 first and avoiding the right-of-way - Trees require room to grow both above and below ground. This means that before you plant a new tree, you must identify the right kind of tree for your yard - and the right location, away from power lines and underground facilities.
Talk to your nursery or the County Extension Agent for suggestions on low-growing trees that can be planted near power lines. And as always, before you dig, make sure to contact your local One Call Center by calling 811.
