Certified arborists trim trees
EPCOR's tree trimming contractors are arborists certified as Utility Tree Trimmers (UTT) with special training to safely trim trees near power lines.
Trees in park areas
To minimize impact to parks areas, we work with the City of Edmonton Parks and Road Services to identify trees and shrubs requiring pruning or removal. Together we identify trees that are growing towards and in some cases, are already in contact with the overhead power lines. We also conduct health assessments on the trees to determine which trees are at risk of falling and making contact with the high-voltage line, which required more aggressive pruning and removal.
