2007 Tree Timming Contract Awarded

Sturgeon Bay Utilities (SBU) is pleased to announce that it has contracted with Dave's Tree Service, Inc., a local tree services contractor, to provide tree trimming services to the areas immediately adjacent to the Utility's overhead power lines located on the west side of Sturgeon Bay.

The tree trimming program is performed annually by the Utility in an attempt to minimize damage to overhead electric lines that can be experienced during storm events. Damage to these lines can pose serious safety hazards to the general public as well as utility staff that are called upon to respond to these emergency situations. Tree damage can also cause unexpected power outages that can impact both business and residential customers alike.

The program generally targets trees that are located within the public right-of-way. In instances where trees that are located on private property pose an imminent risk to the electric distribution system, attempts will be made to contact affected residents prior to any trimming operations being performed. Detailed information regarding tree trimming services, as they pertain to electric utility systems, can be found on our website by clicking here.
