    Emergency trimming

    During power outages and emergencies, our focus is on restoring power to customers as quickly and safely as possible.


    Emergency trimming occurs any time that AES Ohio must perform unplanned work to clear trees or vegetation in order to make repairs to equipment or restore power to customers.


    What to know

    • When unplanned tree trimming is necessary during a storm or emergency restoration, we do not clean up the debris.
    • Our crews must work quickly to restore power to all of our customers. Our crews may need to cut broken or uprooted trees so AES Ohio can make repairs to our lines.
    • Brush and wood are left at the property so that we can proceed with our restoration work.
    • In these emergency situations, your community's public works department, private trash collectors or a professional tree removal service can lend assistance and advice regarding cleanup and disposal of brush and debris.


    Put safety first

    After a storm, if you have downed trees or branches on your property, it’s critical to check for downed power lines before beginning clean up work. If you see a downed line, assume it is energized and call 877-4OUTAGE or report it online. Keep kids and pets away until crews can make the area safe. Read more
