A contractor for First Energy will be pruning trees along electric lines in the Moreland, Ludlow and Onaway neighborhoods  (see map below for impacted streets). Residents should note:

  • The bulk of the work will take place in back yards where power lines are located. 
  • The work is scheduled to begin tin late February or early March
  • Residents whose properties are scheduled for line clearance pruning will receive a door hanger from First Energy before the work starts
  • Residents with questions or concerns about line clearance work should contact First Energy’s Customer Service line at 1-800-589-3101.

Pruning along electric lines, whether on the street or in residential backyards, is managed by First Energy as part of its line clearance program. This program is mandated by the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio in order to maintain transmission lines and help prevent outages from downed limbs and trees. First Energy selects and oversees the contractors for this line clearance work.
