Trees and safe, reliable energy service
Avista employs a professional, systematic approach to vegetation management in our maintenance of thousands of miles of electric distribution and natural gas lines. Many of those lines, by necessity, cross private property and our customers' yards. Our vegetation management program aims to protect our customers and their property, as well as our construction crews.
Trees cause many of the electric power outages on our overhead electric system. High winds during severe storms can uproot trees and send branches into power lines and pull up or break a natural gas line, potentially causing a serious gas leak. Power outages, while inconvenient, also pose a threat to public safety. Downed wires can cause serious injuries and spark fires, and power outages can interrupt essential community services to hospitals, traffic signals and communications systems.
