NES Receives National Tree Award for 10th Straight Year

Nashville Electric Service (NES) has been recognized as a Tree Line USA utility for the 10th consecutive year. This honor is given to utilities that demonstrate their commitment to providing safe, efficient service while helping protect and preserve community trees through proper pruning, planting and care.

The certification from the Arbor Day Foundation recognizes NES for its quality tree care, annual worker training, public education programs and tree-based energy conservation program.

NES employs six, full-time certified utility arborists, follows specific pruning methods when trimming around power lines, ensures quality tree care consistent with best practices from the International Society of Arboriculture and participates in community tree plantings throughout the year. NES also partners with the Metro Tree Advisory Committee, the Nashville Tree Foundation and the Tennessee Urban Forestry Council.
