ComEd intends to perform vegetation management in your area within the next few months. The 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. ComEd has provided a map of the area affected by the vegetation management activities. Also, please be aware that ComEd has notified any affected customers and property owners.
ComEd recognizes that vegetation management activities sometimes create concern by residents because trees near electrical wires are significantly trimmed or sometimes require removal. 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.
