Safety Facts about Trees and Power Lines

If a tree or tree limb falls on an electric line call 9-1-1 and then call Dakota Electric at 651-463-6201 or 1-800-430-9722. Do not touch the branch, tree or line.

  • Do not climb trees near power lines.
  • Keep a safe distance from overhead power lines when working with ladders.
