Tipmont recognized as a 2024 Tree Line USA utility

In February, the Arbor Day Foundation named Tipmont a 2024 Tree Line USA utility. It’s the seventh consecutive year Tipmont has been recognized for dedication to proper urban forest management in our service area.

Tree Line USA, a partnership between the Arbor Day Foundation and the National Association of State Foresters, recognizes public and private utilities for pursuing best practices that protect and cultivate America’s urban tree canopy. In addition, Tree Line USA promotes delivering safe and reliable electricity while maintaining healthy community forests.

By joining the Tree Line USA program, service providers benefit from lowering line clearance costs due to proper pruning. As a result, people benefit from increased service reliability because those trees will have healthy root systems that decay less, have less structural weakness, and ultimately result in fewer downed lines during storms.

Tipmont achieved the Tree Line USA recognition by meeting five program standards. These include quality tree care, annual worker training, tree planting and public education, a formal tree-based energy conservation, and sponsorship of participation in an Arbor Day celebration.

Tuesday, April 23.
