Con Edison Tree Work to Begin In Cortlandt
Overgrown trees and fallen limbs are the leading cause of power outages during storms.
Beginning August 20, Con Edison contractors, working with the Town of Cortlandt, will be performing a tree survey to help reduce the frequency and duration of power outages in the area.
As part of the survey, we’ll be checking for hazardous trees outside our right of way.
What’s a hazardous tree? Trees growing outside our right of way, including on private property, that are damaged, diseased, dead or dying, and are likely to fall and damage lines, causing an outage.
Our arborists will let you know if you have a hazardous tree on your property, and with your permission, they will trim it or, if necessary, remove it for you.
We hire only professional foresters who are specially trained in preserving tree health and follow International Society of Arboriculture pruning guidelines.
We will never cut or remove a tree that is on private property without your permission.
