Trees and Electric Lines

Electrical utility lines serve nearly every neighborhood, adding efficiency and luxury to every day of our lives. Likewise, trees enhance our neighborhoods and bring beauty to our surroundings. Trees improve our air and water quality. They shade our homes, screen undesirable views, and help reduce noise along with many other ecosystem services. For us to have both trees and electrical lines, those two things must share space where they sometimes conflict with each other. This publication outlines the issues surrounding the conflict between trees and electrical utility lines as well as ways to avoid that conflict: FNR-512-W


The City of Tell City is in the process of a proposed annexation. Should this annexation be passed, the service boundary of Tell City Electric Department will change.

Currently Southern Indiana Power (SIP) is serving a majority of the homes and businesses in the proposed annexation area. Tell City Electric Department has reached an agreement with SIP whereby Tell City Electric Department will provide service to 38 customers in the proposed annexation area.

By State Statute, Tell City Electric Department has three years to provide service to these 38 customers. We are planning to have electric service to these customers within two years.
