Duke Energy crews will be pruning trees along electric lines in Treasure Island during April through June 2018. The green lines on this map shows the approximate areas where trimming activity will occur. Black lines indicate areas that will not be trimmed at this time. The red circle is the location of the substation that the circuit comes out of.
Typically crews start at the substation and work their way down the line. The tree crews will be cleaning up all debris associated with their maintenance activities. As a reminder, debris resulting from storm damage or other events unrelated to Duke Energy maintenance activities is the responsibility of the homeowners. Part of the pruning activity will occur on lateral lines, some of which will require climbing in rear lot areas.
Trees are a leading cause of power outages. Duke Energy’s progressive tree care practices help minimize outages during storms. Tree crews use a technique known as directional pruning, which is endorsed by The National Arbor Day Foundation and the International Society of Arboriculture. Qualified employees are supervised by certified arborists.
