Planting the right tree in the right place is the best way to remedy conflicts.
However, not all tree locations are compatible with overhead electric lines and can pose a threat to public safety and electric service reliability.
Jul 27, The City of Westerville does not assist any private property owners with tree removal problems. You are expected to find your own qualified professionals like Tree Triage to /5(3). During our regular work or through a resident's request, the City’s Electric Division will evaluate a tree to determine whether the tree should be removed and/or replaced.
If the tree qualifies for replacement, the Electric Division will remove the tree and work with the resident to select an appropriate replacement (callor email [email protected]).
The Westerville Electric Division will work with the landowner to identify these trees and determine if the trees will be removed. Trees removed will be at no cost to the landowner and the wood from the removal could be left for the resident in manageable lengths or may be hauled away.
