Why is tree trimming around power lines important?

Trees that grow too close to power lines can create a safety hazard and can cause interruptions to customers’ electrical service. 

If you see a tree making contact with a power line, stay a safe distance away and call FortisBC immediately at 1-866-436-7847. 

Learn more about the importance of tree trimming and removal around power lines.
