Thank you for taking the time to share your concerns about vegetation in your neighbourhood.
It’s important to remember that 40% of power outages (over a third) are caused by branches or trees falling on electric lines. Our goal is certainly not to clear all vegetation in the vicinity, but to prevent branches from coming into contact with power lines and causing outages.
If you are concerned about a specific situation, we invite you to inform us about vegetation that is too close to power lines or that might cause damage. To choose a tree or shrub that is compatible with our power grid, visit our Web site.
