CMP's Tree Care Program Helps Keep the Lights On
Each year, CMP's qualified contractors prune and remove trees along thousands of miles of public roads to provide you with safe, reliable electric delivery service. With over 23,000 miles of line, keeping trees properly trimmed is a responsibility we take seriously.

CMP's Tree Care Customer Contact Program
If you would like CMP to consult with you before pruning near your home or business, fill out the online form. We will contact property owners as requested unless trees cause outages or pose an immediate hazard to public safety or service reliability. When we perform emergency tree work, we will not be able to consult property owners in advance.
To minimize the chance of tree-related power interruptions it’s best not to plant new trees under power lines. We have tips to help you plant trees that won't interfere with power lines.
For more information about planting trees, The National Arbor Day Foundation is a great resource. Visit their Web site at www.arborday.org or call 1-888-448-7337.
