Tree Trimming FAQ's

Q1: Does ZAMSURECO-I grant requests for the cutting of trees, whether in private or public property?



A: ZAMSURECO-I accommodates requests for tree trimming as long as it is in close proximity (within 4 feet) to power lines.

Under the Dept. of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Administrative Order No. 97-34 entitled “Guidelines on Tree Planting Near Electric Power Line Systems”, ZAMSURECO-I  is authorize to trim/prune/cut trees including palms and shrubs which disrupt electric power distribution with prior permit of certification from the local DENR offices concerned.
