Trees are an important part of the urban landscape. In fact, the Arbor Day Foundation has designated  Eugene as a "Tree City USA Community" for more than 30 years. Trees provide an important economic, aesthetic and emotional value to our community.

At the same time, we all desire and rely on the quality of life that electricity provides. Trees are a major cause of power outages in the Eugene area. To help prevent tree-related outages we proactively prune trees to help keep our equipment clear.

Our program aims to maximize public safety, electric reliability, tree health and customer satisfaction. Since 2007, we have earned the the National Arbor Day Foundation's Tree Line USA award in recognition of our efforts to protect and enhance Eugene's urban forests while delivering reliable energy service.
