Your Clearance Experts!

Your responsibility is to furnish reliable power to homes and businesses. Badger Unified Cooperative Services is here to assist you and make this responsibility easier for you.


Badger Unified Cooperative Services (BUCS) was formed by several electric cooperatives for line clearance. Badger Unified Cooperative Services is a member owned company. This includes tree trimming/removing, spraying and mowing services. Employees are trained and work daily with trimming/removing trees in and around electric power lines. Contact BUCS regarding help to protect your electric power lines from tree related outages due to high winds, storms, ice, etc. We currently service seven different Wisconsin Energy Cooperatives. By these cooperatives owning the line clearance company; they have control of clearance specifications around their power lines, can move crews to work orders as the need arises and can count on immediate response in emergency situations. Because the cooperatives manage the line clearance crews it is easier to get their systems on a trimming rotation cycle. The cooperative then have their line clearance under control.

Personnel are educated and licensed for spray applications. Spraying controls tree re-growth and brush growth. Both are contributors to power outages.
