Oncor Tree Trimming northwest & central portion of UP - updated.

October 21, 2019


Contractors for Oncor trimming trees

Contractors for Oncor began trimming trees near power lines in the northwest section of University Park on Monday, October 7. Trimming is scheduled to last about two months, weather permitting.

Please note: scheduled trimming efforts will likely be delayed as crews rush to repair power lines, feeders and power poles that were damaged or destroyed during the severe weather that hit parts of North Dallas and Richardson on October 20. 

See below for maps and a list showing where trimming will occur during the project. Oncor will also trim additional areas of the City beginning in November, and we will continue to post updated maps with those locations as we receive them. Homeowners in the work areas should receive a door notice from Oncor a few days before the work occurs.  

Trees that grow near power lines pose a serious safety risk and are one of the top causes of power outages each year, along with lightning and wildlife. Service interruptions caused by trees are more than an incon­venience. They can endanger lives through the failure of life support systems, fire alarms, and traffic signals. Power out­ages can also be very costly, especially to commercial and in­dustrial customers.

Under Texas law, Oncor may prune or remove trees that interfere with the reliability and integrity of electrical service within their service area. When this happens, Oncor follows generally accepted industry guidelines and best practices. State law also gives Oncor the authority to go onto residential property to conduct their trimming efforts. Learn more about Oncor's tree trimming practices.
