Southwest Tennessee Electric maintains a comprehensive vegetation management program to control growth in proximity of STEMC lines and equipment. Our tree trimmers are in your area once every 3 to 5 years to maintain clearance. National Electric Safety Code (NESC) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations require electric utilities to clear vegetation from power lines as a safety measure for our members and our employees.
Right-of-Way Maintenance crews are supervised by Foresters who follow the guidelines of experts from the International Society of Arboriculture and the National Arbor Day Foundation. Their work may include pruning or removing trees or removing brush. – less–ZoomInfo
