We Will Assess Trees Growing Near Power Lines
Trees on Power Lines
If you see a tree lying on a power line, please call 352-334-2871 immediately.
Trees Near Main Power Lines
We will evaluate a tree on your property that is growing near our main, high-voltage power lines (lines that do not directly connect to your home or business). A GRU forester will perform an on-site assessment of the tree within 14 business days and report our findings.
Trees Near Lines Connected to Homes or Businesses
Electrical lines that connect to your home or business are called service drops and are low-voltage lines (120 or 240 volts).
Property owners are responsible for maintaining limbs that are above but not interfering with the service drop as well as dead trees adjacent to service drops. GRU offers free disconnect service for property owners or tree companies working near these lines. Please call 352-393-1551 for more information.
Remember to follow the Move Over Law if you If you see tree trimmers in the community. Please move over to keep them safe as they work to keep you safe and the power on every day.
