Tree trimming and removal is an important maintenance program conducted by Sumter EMC. Trees interfering with power lines are a major source of line loss and outages. We are constantly removing and trimming trees that are either very near to interfering or already interfering with Sumter EMC lines.
Every year, tree limbs break and fall on our lines causing outages. Sometimes these outages are widespread and take a considerable amount of time to repair. It is important that trees be removed or trimmed back from power lines properly.
If you have trees on your property that are either near or touching the co-op’s lines, please complete the form below. Sumter EMC will only trim or remove trees that are on the primary side of the meter.
After you submit your request, someone will inspect the site. By submitting the form below, you agree to have Sumter EMC perform tree trimming services for the address/account listed.
