The Arbor Day Foundation has recognized Middle Tennessee Electric as a Tree Line USA utility for 2018.

The designation recognizes the cooperative’s efforts and commitment to proper tree pruning, planting and care across the service territory.

“Vegetation Management is one of the hardest things we do as a cooperative,” said Chris Jones, MTEMC president and CEO. “It is also one of the most important things we do. From tree pruning to brush clearing, we are committed to the safety and reliability of the entire system.”
