Why we trim trees

Crews are working in the following areas

Posted on Dec 03 2022 in Kankakee Valley REMC

Tree trimming maintenance is a year-round program for KV REMC. Trimming back trees, especially during the winter months, decreases outages caused by fallen tree limbs during storms with high winds, heavy snow, and ice. A properly executed tree trimming program will provide our member-consumers with safe and reliable electricity.

Our contract crews are trimming in the following townships: 

• Porter County — Union and Porter townships and all areas served in Lake County

• Starke County — Portions of Center, Davis, Washington and Oregon townships 

If you have any questions regarding the right-of-way maintenance program, please contact our office. We appreciate your cooperation.
