Oncor Tree Trimming in UP - updated.

January 2, 2020

Contractors for Oncor trimming treesContractors for Oncor began trimming trees near power lines in  University Park in October.  Trimming is expected to last through February 2020, weather permitting.

See below for maps and a list showing where trimming will occur during the project.  We will continue to post updated maps that show work 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.
