What if my trees are growing into power lines?

If you observe tree branches in contact with overhead lines, please notify Lodi Utilities immediately.  Do not attempt to remove tree branches or limbs on your own. 

The City provides the service to check and remove branches. The City trims only those branches or limbs in contact with lines.

The City will work with a property owner and/or contractor to move or shut off service to the home so trees can be further trimmed or removed safely by property owners.
