Trees and Power Lines

Trees can create potential dangers and damage power lines. The Town of Ponoka Electrical Department trims trees to ensure safety and reliability of electrical service. 

How Can I Help Manage Tree Concerns?

Many power outages are caused by tree limbs falling on or in power lines. This can create potential dangers for you and your property by damaging the wires and causing short circuits. 

Citizens can help the Town manage tree concerns by: 

  • Regularly trimming trees on your property
  • Avoid planting tall-growing trees under or near power lines

If you have a tree on your property that is interfering with a power line, please file an Online Service Request or phone the Town Office at (403) 783-4431 where Town staff can help fill out the form for you.
