ComEd will be trimming trees in areas of Midlothian during the time period of May 2016. Not all area residents will be affected.
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.
"We recognize that our vegetation management activities sometimes create concern by your 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."
Residents with questions or concerns should contact ComEd at 1 (800) Edison-1.
