Crews will be pruning trees along electric lines located within Longwood municipal boundaries during the 1st quarter of 2019. 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 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. This notification constitutes the notice required by Florida Statute 163.3209.
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.
