Commonwealth Edison has informed the City about tree trimming scheduled to take place this summer in various sections throughout Geneva.
During June and July, ComEd crews will be performing critical work that could include trimming work ranging up to tree removal to protect its electric infrastructure near:
- Chalmers, Kansas and Nebraska streets just north of the Burlington Nothern Railway, and
- South of Fargo Boulevard from Dunstan Road to Western Avenue.
ComEd will be conducting its regular tree trimming program in July generally along Kirk Road, Fabayn Parkway, the Geneva business park, Illinois Prairie Path, and unincorporated areas south of the Allendale subdivision.
While the City of Geneva owns and operates its own electric utility, ComEd runs power lines through the community to our substations as well as neighboring municipalities. The company states its vegetation management program helps ensure electrical reliability since tree branch contact with power lines is a leading cause of outages.
ComEd will be notifying affected residents about tree trimming taking place in their neighborhood. Maps and more information also can be found on the City’s website.
Residents who have questions or concerns with ComEd’s program can call the company at 800-334-7661.
