[ARCHIVED] ComEd Schedules Plans Additional Tree Trimming This Winter

ComEd Tree Trimming Map
Commonwealth Edison (ComEd) has notified the City of Geneva of additional tree trimming near its power lines in Geneva during January and February.

Work is scheduled to take place in several areas throughout the community, including:
  • Along Route 25 from Fabyan Parkway to State STreet
  • Oakwood Drive
  • Sections along both North and South River Lane; and
  • Seventh Street from South to Franklin streets.
While the City owns and operates its own electric utility, ComEd does have power lines and infrastructure that runs through Geneva.

According to ComEd, this maintenance program helps ensure electric reliability since tree contact with power lines is a leading cause of electric outages. ComEd has notified impacted property owners of this upcoming work taking place in their neighborhood.

ComEd is expected to complete tree trimming along Heartland Drive east of Peck Road by the end of January. In December, ComEd performed similar operations south of Fargo Boulevard between Dunstan Road and Western Avenue.

For more information about the tree pruning operations, find a map and read ComEd's notification letter to the City on our website.
