Thank you for your patience.
We remove branches and limbs from maintained and landscaped areas when doing regular clearing. Wood is left for the property owner's use. In non-maintained areas, wood, branches and limbs are left to decompose naturally.
We do not remove cut trees or limbs during emergency power restoration, such as after storms. Our tree crews are among the first responders as they work to safely clear trees from our lines and equipment and move to the next location as quickly as possible to allow our line crews to restore power. In these instances, property owners are responsible for removing tree debris.
We have safely used growth regulators for more than 15 years. These products slow tree growth after they're trimmed and help keep trees away from our lines for a longer time. Silver maple, elm, oak and sycamore are examples of fast-growing trees that may have growth regulators applied after trimming.
To ensure the safety of our customers and property owners, we use only herbicides registered with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and other state and federal agencies. And we only use licensed and experienced applicators for this work to ensure proper application of the products.
