Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If the electric company has an easement, unless the easement says otherwise, they are liable for cutting the trees. Even if the electric company is not liable under the terms of the easement, then as you do NOT own the land, the landlord is the one that is liable for the costs, as the land belongs to the landlord and not you. You need to tell the landlord, the land is his land and it is his responsibility and if he takes action against you to try to make you pay then you will sue him for breach of lease and retaliation.
You are not liable to pay for anything unless your lease says that you are liable to pay.
