Tree Trimming Near Power Lines

Post date: Oct 5, 2011 1:23:03 AM

We have received word this week that Progress Energy's tree cutting contractors (Asplundh) are in the Five Points Neighborhood. More than one neighbor from the Five Points area has complained about large trees along the street being excissively trimmed due to power lines. See the photo to the right.

The Mordecai CAC is reaching out to Progress Engery regarding any tree cutting efforts planned within our community and beyond.

We are concerned about our own tree lined streets and making sure tree trimming will be done with care. We will keep you posted as we learn more.

To our knowledge, Progress Energy (Asplundh)trims tree limbs near overhead power lines for your protection and to prevent power outages. Limbs are being removed within a 10 to 20 foot radius around the power lines along the street.
