ComEd Tree Pruning:

ComEd intends to perform vegetation management activities on distribution circuits in the Village within the next few months. The vegetation management activities are a key component of ComEd’s maintenance program to ensure system electrical reliability, as vegetation contact with ComEd equipment is a leading cause of outages. ComEd recognizes that their vegetation management activities sometimes create concern by residents because trees near our electrical wires are significantly trimmed or sometimes require removal. Qualified line-clearance workers contracted by ComEd will be performing the tree pruning work. Supervisors and General Foremen will be in close contact with the crews, ensuring that the work is performed properly. 

For more information about vegetation maintenance along power lines and ComEd’s "Right Tree, Right Place” program, please visit:
