Adams-Columbia Electric Cooperative owns, operates, constructs, monitors and maintains electric distribution facilities in portions of a 12-county service area in central Wisconsin. ACEC is required to conduct regular maintenance on its distribution lines in order to remove tall, fast growing trees and heavy brush. Trees and brush at the edge of the right-of-way may remain, but ACEC prunes them so that they grow away from the electric lines.
