Tree Programs

 

Grimsby Power hires certified arborist companies with trained utility arborist personnel to complete our Tree Trimming Program.
Hiring these companies for tree trimming allows Grimsby Power personnel to continue to build and maintain your electricity system.

Grimsby Power sectioned the territory into three areas for the tree trimming program.
Each area is trimmed once every three years.
