Tree Trimming Waiver

One of Lowell Light & Power’s goals is to keep our power lines free of hazards that may cause potential power loss for our customers, and that includes trimming trees. Our Board of Directors recently adopted a policy for tree trimming on private property, and for the safety of our line crew and our customers, this waiver must be signed before any tree trimming maintenance can begin on the property. If you would like more information on this policy, please click here. If you have any questions regarding this matter, please call our office. You will find a printable version of the tree trimming waiver below.
