Trees Make New Brunswick Beautiful
But without regular pruning and cutting, trees can grow or fall into power lines, cause outages, and become an electrical hazard. So, if you see us doing maintenance on trees in your neighbourhood, please understand we are working to avoid outages and to keep you and your family connected.
Which trees does NB Power Maintain?
How do you schedule tree maintenance?
Prevention is Efficient and Safe
The certified Utility Arborists work hard all year round to keep our power grid reliable; usually around 1,130 km of planned maintenance per year. We use a GIS (Geographical Information System) map of the power grid to track downed lines and use that information to identify problem spots and plan future trimming to most improve reliability. This is in addition to inspecting every line in the province on a rotating multi-year schedule.
