Tree Planting Guide
Did you know?

Unitil’s rights-of-way maintenance program is based on a specific set of environmental principles and practices called Integrated Vegetation Management (IVM).

Storm Resiliency Program

Proactive pruning for more reliable service

Unitil performs scheduled enhanced tree removal and pruning to help increase our electric system's resiliency during a major storm. Your consent to this important tree work can help prevent power outages!

Right Tree, Right Place

Energy-saving trees

We offer free replacement trees to residents who grant permission for trees on their property to be removed as part of our Storm Resiliency Program. These trees allow you to save money and conserve energy when strategically planted around your yard.

Our Equipment & Your Property

What about the lines on your property?

It’s your responsibility to keep trees clear of the electric service line that runs from the pole to your house. Stay at least ten feet away from these energized lines and don’t attempt to prune trees or branches around them on your own!
