Upcoming Tree Trimming

Tree Trimming - 4th qtr 2018

Upcoming Tree Trimming

Duke Energy will have crews pruning trees along electric lines located within Longwood municipal boundaries during the 4th quarter of 2018. The color, indicated on the right side of the map, shows the lines that are 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 our maintenance activities. As a reminder, debris resulting from storm damage or other events unrelated to our 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. Qualified employees are supervised by certified arborists.
