Each year, Newnan Utilities and hired contractors work to trim and remove trees and limbs that pose a threat to electric lines. This work, lasting several months, helps ensure safe and reliable electric service. Clearing limbs and trees helps prevent blinking lights in windy weather and outages during rain and ice storms. Newnan Utilities often attributes our low incidence of outages during storms to the tree trimming program.
Our contractor, Gunnison Tree, will begin trimming in November 2020 and finish in April 2021, weather permitting. Some of the streets affected include Bullsboro Drive, Werz Industrial Blvd., Hillwood Circle, Poplar Road, Parks Road, and Lower Fayetteville Road.
