Trimming and Your Trees 
Trees often grow near power lines and can sometimes cause interruptions with your service. To prevent those instances, Ameren offers comprehensive vegetation management programs which include tree pruning, tree removal, brush cutting and herbicide applications. 

Trees are maintained on four- and six-year cycles, depending on the nature of the work and number of customers per mile on each electrical circuit. Ameren uses several qualified contractors to perform line clearance vegetation management. Our contractors are nationally recognized as professional arboricultural companies who follow the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) pruning standards and pruning methods endorsed by the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA).

Ameren's contractors use these types of pruning methods:

Crown Reduction    Side Pruning      V Pruning
