Adams Electric maintains an annual tree trimming schedule. If you need assistance in felling trees near electric lines, contact our Engineering Department or call us at (800) 232-4797. There is no charge for assistance where there is a possibility of damage to electric lines.
Adams Electric Cooperative sprays vegetation along our electric lines in order to provide safe and more reliable electric power to you. Spraying is a cost-effective way to control vegetation that may interfere with power lines. It is a good alternative to tree trimming which is expensive to Adams Electric Cooperative and its members. We hire only qualified sprayers who are trained in proper spraying techniques and licensed by the Department of Agriculture.
Spraying will not be done within 50 feet of permanent or seasonal residences. Herbicides will not be sprayed where prohibited by label instructions or within 50 feet of lawns or ornamental plantings.
