Tree Trimming Service
Having problems with flickering or dimming lights? Tree limbs rubbing or laying against your
electric service line might be the culprit. OMLPS offers free tree trimming to remove branches that
come in contact with electric services. Tree trimming shall be limited to pruner pole trimming only.
Removal and disposal of brush is the responsibility of the property owner. If pruning the tree will not
eliminate constant contact with electric service, OMLPS recommends the use of tree guard and
will install free of charge. If the tree will likely cause damage to the service line and the
problem cannot be remedied by pruning or the use of tree guard, the customer shall be notified of
If the customer’s service requires extensive trimming not provided by OMLPS, OMLPS will drop the
overhead service line at no charge to the customer to allow for trimming or removal of the tree.
