PEPCO is beginning to plan for routine tree work to maintain required clearance from the overhead electric lines to provide for reliable electric service and reduce outages caused by trees. 

The PEPCO planners will be working in all City neighborhoods planning for line clearance work this year, beginning in The College Park Estates and Yarrow neighborhoods. All trees, including those on private property, growing near the electric power lines will be inspected by an arborist to determine what will need to be done, whether pruning will accomplish the required clearance or a tree removal may be needed. Pepco arborists will leave a door hanger with contact information if a tree on private property is planned for trimming or removal. Residents should respond directly to the planner with comments or questions related to the tree work planned for their privately owned tree. 

The City will be working with PEPCO planners to review the tree work plan and approve or deny work planned on trees in the public right-of-way. PEPCO representatives will be making a presentation to the City Council on March 17th to discuss the 2020 scheduled line clearance work in College Park. Be sure to watch the presentation (meetings can be streamed at www.collegeparkmd.gov/councilmeetings#stream) for additional information.
