ComEd Vegetation Management Activities

Trees and branches that interfere with power lines can create safety hazards and cause power outages. Preventative tree maintenance helps avoid power outages. 


Within the next three months ComEd will trim trees, branches and vines that interfere or have the potential to interfere with power lines. In some cases, tree removal may be required. The remaining tree stumps are treated with an approved herbicide to prevent future regrowth. Herbicide will be applied by state-license applicators. All work is performed by trained, qualified arborists. 


Maps of the affected areas are on file at the Village Hall. If you have any questions regarding the tree trimming process, call 800-Edison-1 (800-334-7661) and ask to speak with a Vegetation Management representative, or click here.  


Property owners may appeal planned vegetation management activities through ComEd or the Illinois Commerce Commission. To contact a Consumer Affairs Officer of the Illinois Commerce Commission call 800-524-0795.
