PG&E with tree planting tips on Arbor Day

As the state prepares to celebrate California Arbor Day during the week of March 7-14, Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) reminds customers to plant the “right tree, in the right place.” Even trees that are small when planted may grow to heights that can interfere with overhead power lines.

The benefits of planting trees are abundant; trees keep homes cool by providing shade, enhance property values and clean the air. If the right tree is not planted in the right place, however, it can cause power outages and create a safety hazard. In fact, more than 90 percent of tree-caused outages come from healthy trees and branches that fall or grow into power lines. 

Planting the right tree in the right place enhances public safety and reduces the potential for electrical outages.
