Pepco is back in town trimming trees. The question has come up that they just trimmed these trees two years ago, why are they back trimming more on the same trees. The branches they are timming seem to be
more than just the two years growth. The answer is that Pepco installed new poles, and the trees were trimmed up to the old poles.The new poles are taller, therefore there is more trimming required to meet the higher pole plus the removal of the two year growth. This is unfortunately their new "reliability standard" Public Works will monitor thier work to ensure there is no unnecssary damage to the town's trees, but if you do see something, do not hesitate to contact Public Works at 301-773-2666.
