Oncor Logo         Oncor Tree Trimming Initiative

Over the next few months, Oncor will increase vegetation management in order to better serve their customers.  While this program will not eliminate all outages, it will be a step towards minimizing them, as trees are a frequent cause of many electrical outages. Trees that grow into power lines can affect electric service to an entire neighborhood.

Oncor understands the sensitive matter of tree trimming in Cedar Hill, which is why they are working with certified arborists and degreed foresters who will in turn work with experienced line-clearance qualified crews to prune trees.  Customers will be notiifed at least five (5) days in advance, in person, and if the customer is unavailable, a door hanger will be left with information on how to contact Oncor regarding the scheduled trimming. 

For additional information, please visit, or if you would like to speak with an Oncor representative, please call 1-800-518-2375.
