Question: If trees are disrupting power lines on my property, will the utility company pay to have the trees trimmed or removed?
Top Answer (32% of 83 votes): Sometimes.

Answer: Usually
Explanation: Most utility companies will pay to keep the lines clear. If your tree is rubbing power lines please call the company, your neighbors hate power outages as much as you do. We will not work on trees that are touching power wires. It's dangerous. We can remove the tree or do significant pruning after the wires are clear.
