Tree Planting & Care

Location, location, location

You received a tree from PPL Electric Utilities’ Community Roots program. Now what?

In addition to planting the tree according to the instructions in your planting guide, where you plant your tree also is very important.

Plant your tree far from any PPL power line or power line right of way. We want you to enjoy your tree for many years to come. Trees growing too close to our lines may eventually need to be trimmed or removed to ensure grid reliability.

Call 811 before you dig. Know what’s below. State law requires you to call 811 at least three business days in advance of digging projects involving powered equipment. Our advice is to call 811 before any digging project regardless of the type of equipment being used.
