Tree Trimming Safety


Never touch a tree limb or other object in contact with an electric line.

If you notice limbs, broken branches or other objects touching or hanging from a power line, immediately call Fort Collins Utilities at 970.221.6700 and a crew member will clear the line.

Utilities is responsible for keeping tree limbs away from overhead power lines, and by regulation, can trim trees on private property to maintain proper clearance of individual lines.

Tip #161

Always use a permanent "duct mastic" material-not duck tape-for sealing attic ductwork and crawl spaces.
