BGMU is committed to providing uninterrupted electric service each day. This vital service is supplied through a well-maintained electric delivery system. Our tree trimming program is an essential part of that process.

Since our accelerated program began in 2004, tree related outages have dropped 41 percent. It's proof our tree trimming program works.

BGMU’s tree trimming practices conform with the procedures set forth in the American National Standards Institute publication "Tree, Shrub, and Other Woody Plant Maintenance - Standard Practices" (ANSI A300). These standards require the use of "directional" and "natural trimming" methods (endorsed by the National Arborist Association, the National Arbor Day Foundation, and the International Society of Arboriculture) when pruning trees.

For additional resources on tree trimming and planting, visit The National Arbor Day Foundation.

BGMU has a Right-of-Way Foreman who can be contacted with all concerns and questions relating to tree trimming. To contact the Right-of-Way Foreman, please call 782-4558 or e-mail.
