REC tree giveaway is on Saturday

Pauls Valley, Oklahoma — Rural Electric Cooperative’s annual tree giveaway for its members will be held Saturday, Feb. 23 beginning at 8 a.m.

Employees of REC will be in Lindsay, Elmore City, Maysville and Rush Springs to give members trees during the Cooperative’s Operation Tree Planting/Replacement Program.

Members will each receive up to 10 trees.

REC has over 2,800 miles of electric distribution lines, which means clearing trees is an on-going project.

REC has a right-of-way clearing program which includes pruning, removals and chemical control. REC crews also prune new growth during their daily routines.

REC’s tree giveaway program helps replace trees the Cooperative must remove from under its power lines. Providing trees to members is the Cooperative’s way of replacing one of our natural resources.

“Reliable power requires us to keep our rights-of-way clear of trees and helps REC provide more dependable power,” said Ed Bevers, manager of engineering.

“We appreciate our members’ cooperation as we work to maintain our rights-of-way.”

Employees of the Cooperative will be at REC’s headquarters in Lindsay, the school parking area in Rush Springs, the fire department parking area in Maysville and school parking area in Elmore City.

Types of trees available this year are Loblolly Pine, Sawtooth Oak and Cherrybark Oak.

The Cooperative requests members to not plant trees any closer than 30 feet of electric power lines. This will allow the trees to mature without requiring trimming or removal in the future.

Members needing additional information about REC’s Tree Program may contact REC’s Member Services Department at 756-3104 or toll free at 1-800-259-3504, extension 238.
