Providing safe and reliable electricity is always a priority at WPS. Trees that grow into power lines can cause electric service interruptions. That's why WPS has a proactive tree trimming program to trim trees and branches away from power lines every three or four years in residential areas and every five, six or eight in rural areas.

Despite our efforts, trees and branches can still sometimes cause power outages, particularly during storms.
If you have trees that are growing into or have fallen onto power lines, stay away and call us at 800-450-7260. A tree limb that comes in contact with an electric line can be a conductor and be extremely hazardous and life threatening.
