    Tree trimming

    Worker trimming a tree Tree trimming

    Misplaced or improperly maintained trees often cause power outages and can be dangerous when branches come in contact with power lines.

     

    To prevent contact, AES Indiana has a comprehensive tree-pruning, line-clearing program that operates on a 36-month cycle. After the trees are trimmed in a routine trim cycle, AES Indiana crews will haul away the debris.

    Emergency line clearance

    • In emergency situations involving tree trimming, AES Indiana DOES NOT clear away the debris. 
    • Emergency trimming situations include after a storm and any time there is tree-to-equipment contact, or where trees are close enough to equipment that an outage is highly likely. 
    • The clean-up work is the customer’s responsibility and AES Indiana recommends that customers contact their insurance company to see if they will cover the cost of hiring a clean-up crew.

    We work year-round to prevent existing trees from causing outages or danger to you. We also work with Indy Parks and Recreation and Keep Indianapolis Beautiful to continually plant the right trees in the right places through our Trees for Indy program.

    Each year from 2004 through 2018, AES Indiana earned the Tree Line USA accreditation from the Arbor Day Foundation. More information about this award

    Remember … If you see a downed power line, stay away from it and call AES Indiana immediately at 317-261-8111.
