Trim Trees

Whether it’s winter’s ice storms or summer’s electrical storms, you can take comfort in knowing that Laurens Electric Cooperative has a well-maintained distribution system designed to handle all the energy needs of its members, and a proven plan for storm-related outages.

To lessen the risk that storms will damage the overhead lines into your home, have any trees that grow near those lines trimmed. If you notice trees threatening to damage any of LEC’s high voltage power lines, please notify us at 1-800-942-3141.

In addition to standby crews and a well-maintained distribution system, Laurens Electric Cooperative has an aggressive tree-trimming program in place. Right-of-way maintenance becomes especially apparent during major storms, be it summer or winter; there is often damage to trees. By trimming vegetation in our rights of way, we help minimize potential damage and power outages caused by trees falling into lines.
