UPCOMING TREE TRIMMING

Map for trimming

Duke Energy will have crews pruning trees along electric lines located within Longwood municipal boundaries during the 2nd quarter of 2021. The attached map(s) show the lines planned for trimming. Typically, crews start at the substation and work their way out/down the line. The tree crews will be cleaning up all debris associated with maintenance activities. As a reminder, debris resulting from storm damage or other events unrelated to maintenance activities is the responsibility of the homeowners. Part of the pruning activity will occur on lateral lines, some of which will require climbing in rear lot areas.

Trees are a leading cause of power outages. Duke Energy’s progressive tree care practices help minimize outages during storms. Tree crews use a technique known as directional pruning, which is endorsed by The National Arbor Day Foundation and the International Society of Arboriculture. Certified arborists supervise qualified employees.
