Do not climb trees or trim trees that are located near power lines, and keep children from doing the same. Even momentary contact with a powerline, or a tree or tree branch that is in contact with a power line, can severely injure or kill. Hiring a qualified contractor to trim trees near power lines is a safer alternative. Contact ComEd if you have any questions about tree trimming in these situations.
You may contact ComEd at 1-800-EDISON-1 (1-800-334-7661) should you have additional questions about these options.
