Video: Idaho Power Trims Trees to Maintain Safe, Reliable Service

Every year, Idaho Power prunes customers’ trees to keep them away from power lines in an effort to maintain safe, reliable service. We also offer guidance for customers on the right trees or shrubs to plant to avoid power-line interference, and we ask customers to call us if they see trees that may be too close to a power line.

Here’s a new video on the kinds of pruning we do and how it affects customers’ trees. Find additional information about trees, safety and electric reliability at
