  • Check for power lines first.
    Before trimming a tree, Golden Triangle seniors should check carefully for nearby power lines. If you find one, contact your local electric utility (often, Entergy Texas) before you proceed. Touching a power line with a tool or tree branch can cause a shock or start a fire.
  • Don’t trim trees near power lines.
    Only licensed, qualified tree trimmers are allowed to work near high-voltage lines. To ensure Southeast Texas senior safety, don’t risk trimming trees near power lines yourself! Recently, we had some concerns about trees near our power lines in Wildwood. We asked Entergy Texas and they had someone out in 24 hours.
  • Plant trees far from power lines and equipment.
    Determine how tall and how wide the tree will be when it is fully grown. Then plant it where it will not come within 10 feet of power lines or other utility equipment. Before planting, call the local one-call utility locator service to be sure you won’t contact buried utilities when you dig.
