Our Goal is To manage the

power lines' rights-of-way to prevent service interruption in the most efficient and cost effective way possible

Tree Trimming

The Vegetation Management Department at Hendricks Power Cooperative performs several different tasks, primarily the trimming and removal of trees around power lines. Often, trees or tree limbs come in contact with power lines, and can result in a power outage. These service interruptions are not only inconvenient for our customers, but are many times costly to the cooperative as well.

2017 Schedule

In 2017, we will be trimming trees along power lines in the following:
  • Heritage Lake
  • Danville
  • Coatesville
  • Fillmore
  • Greencastle
  • Bainbridge
  • Roachdale
  • Ladoga
  • North Salem
  • Lizton

Where are we now?

We are currently finishing work in the Montclair area by mid-December. We will also have crews begin in the Barnard circuit in mid-December. In early 2018 we will begin in the Tilden circuit. Asplundh will attempt to notify property owners prior to working in their areas.

Who will trim my trees?

Tree trimming professionals contracted by Hendricks Power Cooperative will perform all tree trimming. These crews are equipped with modern tree trimming equipment and are trained in the latest ANSI A300 pruning standards.

​Will I be contacted before trees are trimmed on my property?

Yes. Members are contacted by mail and in person. If no one is home, a doorknob card will be left by the contractor working in your area. We also keep our website updated with the locations where we will be working.

How much will be trimmed?

How fast your tree grows by species and proximity to the power lines determines how much clearance is necessary. Fast growing trees such as soft maple, white pine and willow require more clearance than slow growing trees like hard maple, hackberry and spruce.
