Rockland Electric Co. - Vegetation Management

Release Date: February 16, 2017

Rockland Electric  -  Vegetation Management  -  Distribution Line Clearance Program
 
 
Rockland Electric Company will be working hard to ensure the electric distribution lines are properly maintained.  Because interference from tree limbs is the single most frequent cause of power outages, periodic tree maintenance along overhead electric distribution wires is critically important in reducing potential power outages.
 
Crews will make every effort to be in and out of the area as quickly as possible.  Since this type of work is now performed on a four-year cycle, any neighborhood included this year won’t be visited again for routine upkeep (except in emergencies) for approximately four years.
 
The current schedule for distribution line tree maintenance work will commence on or about March 1, 2017, and continue for approximately four (4) weeks in each area.  Trees Inc. has been contracted by Rockland Electric Company for this project.  Residents will be contacted via letter to be apprised of the program requirements. Tree trimming and removal work along the following street(s):   Route 202/Ramapo Valley Road, Midvale Mountain Road, Glen Grey Road, Bear Swamp Road, Deerhaven Road, and associated side streets.
