Tree Trimming

Here in New England, tree limbs and branches are the leading cause of power outages. Improved electric system safety and reliability are the result of a strong vegetation management program here at Eversource.

Non-emergency tree trimming requests are suspended in accordance with our response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We will email or call to obtain consent for essential tree work on or near your property and will not come to your door.
