Residents who live in the southern portion of the city, mainly south of the double railroad tracks, may see crews from Xcel Energy pruning trees this fall. Crews are expected to be in the area sometime beginning in September to prune trees around the company’s equipment. This is required to maintain proper tree clearance and minimize power outages per the National Electric Safety Code.
To see a more detailed map of the pruning areas, visit the City website.
Residents will be notified of the tree pruning in the affected areas by automated phone call. Workers may need access to private property to remove tree branches near equipment. Crews will prune trees that, in its judgment, may cause an interruption in service, endanger the company’s electric lines or present a safety hazard.
