Getting ready to plant trees, bushes, or shrubs? Please look around to see where overhead power lines may be affected by their growth in the future. For example, a 2 foot tall fir seedling will grow over 100 feet tall and about 30-50 feet wide in its lifetime.
Not to mention planting over underground utilities or planting cover to hide underground utilities makes an outage last longer and is unsafe for workers. Get your underground utilities located free of charge, just call 811.
You may also call WOEC for assistance on plant selection and placement.
