[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 electrical system reliability, as vegetation in 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.

Tree trimming crews from Davey will be working on the following streets:  1st Avenue, 26th Street, Bartram, Groveland, Kimbark, Lincoln, Loudon, Maplewood, Northgate, Nuttall, Selborne, Southcote and Woodside. There will be additional work in North Riverside and along the CN Railroad right of way.  Residents in locations where tree trimming is scheduled should have received a post card directly from ComEd.

Additionally, ComEd strongly advocates for proactive efforts to ensure that only appropriate vegetation is planted near ComEd facilities, and easement and leases usually specify vegetation restrictions. Trees that grow taller 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.
