ComEd Scheduled to Perform Line Clearance Tree Trimming in May 
ComEd is scheduled to begin work to trim trees and branches that interfere with power lines in Roselle in May. Work will continue this spring to perform this preventative tree maintenance that reduces the chance of power outages and other safety hazards.

The trimming that ComEd is performing is done by trained, qualified arborists, and includes trees in front and back yards throughout the Village. ComEd is notifying residents using mailers and door tags in advance of tree trimming projects.

The final shape of trees after trimming will depend on their size, shape, and proximity to the power lines. For more information about line clearance work being performed by ComEd, please visit their website or call 1-800-Edison1 (1-800-334-7661).
