Trees in the power lines can be dangerous,please do not try to remove these limbs yourself.
Anoka Municipal Utility (AMU) has a regular rotation of tree-trimming around the city so they do not have to go from one side of town to the other and back again.
Trimming and cutting the needed trees and branches in the power lines (excluding cable or phone lines) is a free service, but the residence will be responsible for clean-up.
Priority of Tree Trimmings
Due to high volumes of tree trimming requests, we will come out to prioritize the urgency of action. You do not need to be home for this.
If your situation is not high priority and you do not want to wait, you can hire a licensed tree specialist who handles trees in power lines at your own cost. Check out the City of Anoka’s Tree Care Licenses web page for a list of Licensed Tree Care Specialists around our area.
Thank you for helping us to be #CommunityPowered by letting us know of situations we may not be aware of. As a community owned utility, it takes all of the community to keep our city bright!
