Trees That Need Replaced

TREE REMOVAL & REPLACEMENT PROGRAM


Moon Lake's Tree Replacement Program is designed to improve service reliability and reduce safety hazards by removing large trees that are interfering with high voltage distribution lines. Trees growing into these lines increase the likelihood of electrocution, fire, and electrical outages.

Trees will be removed at the co-op's expense, and the member will be reimbursed up to $50 towards the cost of replacing the removed tree(s) with tree(s) whose height will not exceed 15 feet at full growth.

TREE PLANTING TIPS


To reduce the need for tree pruning or removal, be sure you choose an appropriate tree for the space. Some things to keep in mind as you're planting:

Low-growing trees (under 25 feet when mature) may be planted adjacent to overhead power lines.

Plant tall-growing trees (over 25 feet when mature) at least 25 feet away from overhead power lines.

Trees that grow taller that 35 feet when mature should be planted 50 feet away from overhead lines.

Plant trees and shrubs at least 10 feet away from ground mounted transformers.

Contact Blues Stakes or the Utility Notification Center of Colorado to locate underground utilities before you dig.

TREES, SHRUBS, AND ENERGY SAVINGS


Planting trees and shrubs in the right area can help reduce your energy bills. Here are a couple of tips:

Plant deciduous trees facing southeast and southwest for summer shade and winter sun.

Plant evergreen trees to provide winter windbreaks.
