Will the trees ever regain a natural appearance?

The trees will continue to grow, but they will not look the same as before they were trimmed. Because trees and power lines are not compatible, CenterPoint Energy will continue to trim trees as necessary in the future to maintain clearance for service reliability. Allowing the trees to grow naturally could create problems with the delivery of electrical service. However, we do use natural pruning methods to minimize the impact of the work.
