Power outages are a pain and trees are often the cause. Find out what MLGW’s tree trimming practices are around power lines, proper tree care and how to select the best trees to reduce your energy burden.
“Power Outages – Rooted in Trees” starts our virtual neighborhood series on Thursday, April 15 at 4 p.m.
The session is a part of MLGW’s EmPOWERING Sustainable Neighborhoods series. The series is open to all residents and will be held virtually on Zoom each quarter. Previously, MLGW held an annual all-day conference for neighborhood leaders.
Our first guests include John Bowman Kelley, an arborist with the Memphis Botanic Garden, Michael Hamrick, an energy technician with MLGW’s Residential Energy Services department and Keith May, general supervisor district support for MLGW’s Line Clearance department. May is also an arborist.
