[ARCHIVED] ComEd Vegetation Management

Bur-Oak

ComEd has notified the Village that they will be conducting vegetation management operations in the village during April and May.  Vegetation management activities are a key component of ComEd’s maintenance
program to ensure system electrical reliability, as vegetation contact with ComEd equipment is a leading cause of outages.

Qualified line-clearance workers contracted by ComEd will be performing the tree pruning work. Supervisors and General Foremen will be in close contact with the crews, ensuring that the work is performed properly.

Additionally, we are strong advocates of proactive efforts to ensure that only appropriate vegetation is planted near our facilities, and our easement and leases usually specify vegetation restrictions. Trees that grow greater than 20 feet, for example maple, elm, and blue spruce, should never be planted under or near distribution power lines. At full height, these trees could contact lines and cause a power outage or create a
safety issue. Trees and bushes that grow to heights less than 20 feet, for example dogwoods or crabapples, can often be planted near distribution power lines.

For more information about vegetation maintenance along power lines and ComEd’s “Right Tree, Right Place” program, please visit: http://www.comed.com/SafetyCommunity/Safety/Pages/TreesPowerLines.aspx.
