Our crews are constantly trimming and removing trees under power lines, in our ongoing effort to make your electric service as reliable as possible. Along roadways where there are no houses, we remove problem trees from the public easements and rights-of-way. It saves our customers money to remove them rather than trim repeatedly. We never remove yard trees without first talking with the homeowner. We work with the wishes of our customers regarding removal or trimming of trees whenever we are able to without endangering our personnel or the reliability of the electrical distribution system.
You are responsible for making sure trees aren’t growing into the line that comes from our distribution system to your house. If limbs are getting too close, contact us and one of our service technicians will come by and drop your service line for you while you trim the trees. DO NOT attempt to trim trees yourself that are growing near distribution lines or your service wire. Doing so can put you at risk of deadly electrical shock.

The purpose of this program is to help avoid any hardship which could result from electric service being disconnected by alerting a third party to such action in advance.
Should it become necessary for your electric service to be disconnected for non-payment or violation of rules or regulations, you as well as your designated third party would be notified prior to the disconnect date.
Lamar Light and Power makes every effort to notify the specified “third party” of pending disconnection, but assumes no liability for failure of the third party to receive or to act upon said notice.
The third party can be a friend, relative, church, or any community agency you select, and has the right to receive and provide information regarding your personal circumstances. The third party may enter into a payment arrangement on your behalf, but is not responsible for payment of your bill.
