Tree Trimming to Clear Power Lines Continues

asplundh tree trimmers

In an effort to provide reliable electric service to customers and prevent frequent power outages and interruptions taking place in our neighborhoods, American Electric Power (AEP) will conduct tree-trimming throughout the City of Worthington to reduce contact between trees and power lines. AEP is contracting with Asplundh Tree Services to perform the work, which is expected to take place through the end of May. Worthington residents who have power lines running through their property have been alerted of the project by AEP.

COVID-19 Update

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Asplundh is continuing to work clearing AEP powerlines, as they are considered critical infrastructure. Crews have discontinued knocking on doors or initiating any face to face customer interactions. Crews have been directed to practice social distancing whenever possible. Job briefings require that all workers on a job site gather to talk over the job and any hazards that exist, however employees should continue to practice social distancing as much as possible during these briefings. They are also taking extra trucks into the field so that fewer workers are in each truck. AEP has requested that all Asplundh workers wear masks and this practice should be in place in the coming weeks, however supply at the moment is somewhat limited.  Worthington residents are advised to please practice social distancing if you need to speak to the crews on site. 

 The City of Worthington would like to thank all residents for their understanding and patience during this necessary project. More information is also available online at www.aepohio.com/info/treetrimming. If you have any questions, please contact Steve Lajeunesse with AEP at 614-932-1925.
