Ameren Illinois to Conduct Tree Trimming
Ameren to Conduct Tree Trimming
To minimize power outages and safety hazards, Ameren Illinois will be in the area to prune trees in the near future. Crews will use pruning techniques recommended by the International Society of Arboriculture to clear vegetation that could interfere with electric lines running from pole to pole. The illustration below is a sample of the type of pruning that may be required.
** You will not be charged for this service **
As a reminder, the property owner is responsible for maintaining trees near the electric line that runs from the main power line to the home. Please call Ameren Illinois to have your service line temporarily disconnected so this work may be done safely by a qualified tree service.
Additional information is available at MySafeTrees.com. If you have questions or concerns about this work, please call Ameren Illinois at 1.800.755.5000. You may also call the Illinois Commerce Commission at 1.800.524.0795 with any concerns. Maps have been provided to Mayors and County Boards/Chairpersons of the affected areas.
Thank you for your patience when crews are working in your area.
SAFETY REMINDER -- Never attempt to prune trees near power lines yourself. Only qualified line clearance tree contractors are allowed to work within 10-feet of high-voltage lines.
