Tipmont REMC named 2019 Tree Line USA

The Arbor Day Foundation has named
Tipmont REMC a 2019 Tree Line USA
in honor of its commitment to proper
tree pruning, planting and care in the
provider’s service area.

Tree Line USA, a partnership between
the Foundation and the National
Association of State Foresters,
recognizes public and private utilities
for pursuing practices that protect and
enhance America’s urban trees. Tree
Line USA promotes the dual goals of
delivering safe and reliable electricity
while maintaining healthy community

“Trees are a critical part of urban
landscapes all across the United
States,” said Dan Lambe, president
of the Arbor Day Foundation. “Service
providers like Tipmont REMC
demonstrate that it’s possible for trees
and utilities to co-exist for the benefit
of communities and citizens.”

Tipmont REMC achieved Tree
Line USA by meeting five program
standards. Utilities must follow industry
standards for quality tree care,
provide annual worker training in best
tree-care practices, sponsor a treeplanting
and public education program,
maintain a tree-based energy
conservation program, and participate
in an Arbor Day celebration.
