Montville Tree Trimming Notification

JCP&L serves more than one million electric customers throughout New Jersey and operates and maintains thousands of miles of electrical conductors in order to provide safe and reliable electric service to those customers. Maintaining these lines requires, among other things, the routine trimming and removal of vegetation on a cyclical basis, determined by JCP&L in accordance with applicable regulations, in order to avoid or reduce service interruptions to JCP&L customers within your community (and elsewhere) as a result of vegetation interference with those lines.  Experience has shown that regular, diligent and professional vegetation management practices assist in reducing the number of service problems and outages that our customers experience.

Beginning on or about January 1, 2019, JCP&L contractors will be performing line clearance tree trimming in your community along Company rights-of-way.  This work will include the routine trimming of limbs to provide 4 years of clearance from electric wires, selective removal of limbs overhanging the electric conductors and removal of hazard trees that pose an imminent risk to electric facilities.  All tree removals are performed in accordance with JCP&L’s easement rights or otherwise with the written consent of the property owner.  

JCP&L contractors are qualified line clearance tree workers trained in OSHA safety standards, as well as, in proper pruning techniques developed by the National Arborists Association.  Contracted tree crews will be following a pruning technique that is often referred to as directional or lateral pruning.

 

The streets listed below are scheduled to receive sub transmission tree trimming in January, 2019.
