Watch for electric co-op tree-trimmers in Libby

Print Article

Keep an eye out for Flathead Electric Cooperative work crews that will soon trim and, if necessary, remove trees growing too close to power lines within Co-op right-of-ways in the Libby area.

Trees growing near and into power lines can create public safety hazards, start fires and cause power outages. The tree-trimming program can prevent dangerous situations and maintain electric reliability.

The trimming will be done by professionals trained on safe, proper and environmentally responsible practices.

For more information and to learn more about how to plant the right tree in the right place to avoid conflicts with power lines, visit flatheadelectric.com.
