Tree Trimming


The Borough's contracted line clearance contractor, Davey, will be conducting tree trimming activities in your neighborhood over the coming weeks. The purpose of this work is to ensure that our power lines remain safe and reliable, especially during extreme weather conditions.

As you may already know, trees and vegetation growing near power lines can cause outages and other electrical hazards. To prevent these incidents, we have established a regular tree trimming program that follows best practices and standards set by the industry.

Our contractor will be working in close coordination with us to minimize any inconvenience or disruption to your daily routine. They will use specialized equipment and techniques to prune or remove trees that pose a risk to our power lines while preserving the health and beauty of the remaining trees.

We ask for your cooperation and understanding during this process. While we will try our best to complete the work as quickly as possible, there may be some temporary traffic disruptions or noise near your property. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your patience.

If you have any questions or concerns about the tree trimming program, please do not hesitate  to contact the Electric Division at 717-738-9236 ext.176. We value your feedback and suggestions and we are committed to providing you with safe and reliable electric service.
