Con Edison Trimming Trees Near Wires in Larchmont

LARCHMONT, N.Y. -- Throughout the year, workers in Larchmont wearing hard hats yelling, "Don't walk inside the cones," will be trimming trees if they are too close to the overhead power lines as part of Con Edison's ongoing effort to maintain safe and reliable service.

Con Edison contracted Lewis Tree Company to perform the trimming, which occurs year-round throughout the village.

Crew members will trim trees so that they are either 10 feet underneath or to the side, or 15 feet above the power lines.

"Overgrown and fallen tree limbs are the leading cause of power outages during storms," according to the Con Edison website. "Con Edison's tree maintenance program helps ensure safe, reliable service for you and your neighbors by carefully trimming branches that may interfere with power lines."

Lewis Tree Service recently worked on over-reaching branches along Weaver Street and W. Boston Post Road. In both instances they blocked one lane of traffic. If they are scheduled to trim trees on your street, you should have received a letter in the mail and follow up notification before work began.

The following is a list of streets Con Ed has scheduled for trimming:

- Boston Post Road (US1) from Nassau Road to Monroe Avenue- Thompson Place from Boston Post Road- Monroe Avenue from Boston Post Road to Ervilla Drive- Clarke Court - Cherry Avenue- Larchmont Avenue from Boston Post Road to Chestnut Avenue- Prospect Avenue from Chestnut Avenue to Willow Avenue- Chestnut Avenue from Larchmont Avenue to Prospect Avenue.
