DNR recognizes utility companies as Tree Line USA utilities when they commit to healthy tree care and maintenance, tree worker training programs, and community tree planting.  In other words, we like trees and we like people and companies who like trees, too.

Trees and utility lines can come into conflict, but with careful planning of where new trees are planted and more attention to proper tree care, there’s no reason they cannot co-exist. See a list of the 10 utility companies in Washington State already recognized for their commitment for healthy trees.

For more information on proper tree care, contact DNR’s Urban and Community Forestry Program.
