Ongoing Pepco Tree Work by Asplundh Tree Care

From Todd Bolton, Arborist

Asplundh Tree Care is doing work for Pepco on power line circuits that run through and around the City. The maps in this selection show what work is scheduled. There are keys showing what the symbols in the maps stand for. The yellow and green lines refer to whether the work is before or after a circuit breaker, not what kind of pruning is being done. In most cases the Asplundh crews are simply cutting back to previous cut points. Occasionally they will be making pruning cuts to mitigate poor cut location choices made by earlier crews. The Arborist is notified when crews are going to be working in town.

The yellow triangles show where both street and private trees will be removed. Removal requests that were denied, again both public and private, are shown with red squares. In the field the trees have had blue spray paint dots on them. The private tree permits have gone through the normal process with Pepco paying application fees and replacement fee in lieu if required. The property owners signed the applications that were submitted to the City for approval.
