To improve reliability and mitigate the risk of wildfires and unplanned outages, IREA maintains a year-round vegetation management program.
This includes tree trimming that keeps branches off our overhead lines. Debris from tree trimming operations is ground into wood chips that can be used for landscaping or composting. Wood chips produced by trimming crews are free to interested IREA customers and typically can be delivered to the address you specify within a week or two.
To request free wood chips, contact our Vegetation Management Department at (720) 733-5632.
