For your safety, do not climb trees or trim trees that are located near power lines. Always keep children away from trees that are near power lines. Even momentary contact with a power line, or a tree or branch that is in contact with a power line, can severely injure or kill.
PECO does not perform non-emergency tree trimming for the wire running directly to customers' meters (the service wire). If you hire a qualified private contractor, or plan to do any trimming on your own, PECO will either drop or de-energize your service wire and will re-connect it once trimming is complete. Your home will be without power until your service line is re-connected. There is no charge for this service.
