Trees that grow into OG&E power lines can cause outages, create safety hazards and drain electricity off the electrical system. To reduce this hazard and keep our rates affordable, certified line-clearance arborists prune and remove trees on a regular schedule.
OG&E trims and removes approximately 170,000 trees per year.
Outages and Vegetation
Storms can cause damage to electrical equipment. Part of our storm restoration work includes clearing tree limbs that are interfering with power lines.
