Oncor Tree Trimming in UP

September 14, 2020

Contractors for Oncor trimming treesUpcoming Oncor tree trimming in UP

Contractors for Oncor will begin trimming trees near power lines in the northeast section of University Park beginning on September 21. Trimming is expected to last about two weeks, weather permitting.

See below for a map and list showing where trimming will occur. Homeowners in the work areas should receive a door notice from Oncor a few days before the work takes place.

Along with lightning and wildlife, trees that grow near power lines pose a serious safety risk and are one of the top causes of power outages.  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.
