Winter time is AMU's tree trimming time

Winter time is AMU's tree trimming time

As part of an ogoing effert to maintain high reliability, each winter AMU conducts an extensive tree trimming program around overhead electric lines. Over the next several months, you will see AMU employees around your house checking main electric feeders and home electric service drops. AMU's primary focus is on problem areas. Clean-up is a priority of AMU, however, some trimmed branches that are larger may be too big to remove this winter and will be removed when conditions permit. We encourage consumers/owners of AMU to contact our office if you have brances that appear to be in the electric lines. AMU employees will then come out and check thr brances for you.
