Harding Advisories/Notices

1/9/2020 - JCP&L Forestry Contractors will be working in Harding the second week of March 2020

Beginning in or about the second week of March 2020, JCP&L contractor Nelson Tree Service will be performing distribution line clearance tree trimming in your community along Company rights-of-way out of the Green Village Substation.

 This work will include the routine trimming of limbs to provide 4 years of clearance from electric wires, selective removal of limbs overhanging the electric conductors and removal of hazard trees that pose an imminent risk to electric facilities.

 All tree removals are performed in accordance with JCP&L’s easement rights or otherwise with the written consent of the property owner. 

JCP&L contractors are qualified line clearance tree workers trained in OSHA safety standards, as well as, in proper pruning techniques developed by the National Arborists Association.

 Contracted tree crews will be following a pruning technique that is often referred to as directional or lateral pruning.

About two weeks prior to the start of line clearance operations, additional notice will be provided regarding this planned work.

 Please contact Randy Brockett, Forestry Specialist, (908) 902-0382, if you have any questions or concerns.
