Announcing the Trees Together Coloring Contest!
Hundreds of third graders in our Montana, South Dakota and Nebraska service areas entered our annual Trees Together Coloring Contest. The purpose of the contest is to raise awareness of the importance of trees and tree-planting safety. Our employees voted for their favorite designs, and we are proud to congratulate the following schools who each had a third grader who colored the best picture.

Before You Plant, Get the Facts
Here are some quick facts you should know before planting a tree. For more help planning where you plant, download our tree planting guide here.

  • Pick a tree that’s appropriate for your climate and space.
  • Know where overhead power lines are and plant at least 15 to 20 feet away; trees that grow taller than 40 feet should be planted more than 35 feet away.
  • Call 811 to check for underground utility lines at least two working days before you dig.
  • Once you know where underground natural gas lines are, plant at least 25 feet away. And for more safety tips about planting along a gas pipeline, click here.
