Tree City USA Opens in new window

The City of Kennedale is a proud member of Tree City USA, a program celebrating the importance of an urban tree canopy and working to improve care of these vital city trees. Texas A&M Forest Service has compiled answers to some of the most commonly asked questions and problems that arise concerning tree care.

  1. Report an Electrical Service or Streetlight Outage


    If you see a downed power line, LEAVE THE AREA and call 9-1-1 IMMEDIATELY from a safe distance. To report an outage, call Oncor at 1-888-313-4747; submit a report online; or view outage information. To report a broken streetlight submit a report online.

    Oncor trims trees within their electrical easements. If you desire to have trees on private property trimmed that are in close proximity to the lines running between the main power line and your home or business, call Oncor at 1-888-313-6862 for rates and scheduling of a temporary disconnect to allow the tree service you have hired to cut the limbs. You are urged to use caution around electrical lines and equipment and to never trim trees around power lines yourself. The City of Kennedale does not trim tree limbs on private property or within electrical easements.
  1. Be Mosquito Free - Horizontal

    Tarrant County Public Health (TCPH) has a website dedicated to mosquito prevention and reminds residents of the importance of taking personal protective measures to safeguard against mosquito-borne illness. Residents should routinely dump standing water on their property, use repellent, and dress for dusk to dawn. For additional information, follow TCPH on Facebook or View Arbovirus Reports.
