Tree Trimming

DP&L works year-round to remove dangerous limbs near power lines to improve the safety and reliability of your electric service.

Trees and limbs falling on overhead utility lines during storms are among the most common causes of power outages.

Each year DP&L’s line clearance operation trims trees along 2,100 miles of overhead power lines. Why do we do this? It’s simple: to reduce outages for customers and to protect our infrastructure from damage.
