    Right Tree, Right Place

    Plant smart with utilities in mind.

    Trees and limbs falling on overhead utility lines during storms are among the most common causes of power outages.

    Each year AES Ohio’s line clearance operation trims trees along 2,100 miles of overhead power lines. Why do we do this? It’s simple: to reduce outages for customers and to protect our infrastructure from damage.
