Maintaining the right-of-way is very important to Howard Electric Cooperative. Tree trimming crews contracted by Howard Electric keep the electric lines free of trees and brush. Many times a tree limb hitting an electric line can cause blinking lights in the homes of our members.

If you see a tree touching an electric line, in danger of falling into the electric line, or if you have questions regarding tree trimming contact Howard Electric at (660) 248-3311 or send an email to

If you have questions about tree trimming at your property or would like information about our tree exchange program please call us at (660) 248-3311.
