Tree Trimming Activities

Trees and branches that interfere with power lines can create safety hazards and cause power outages. Preventative tree maintenance helps avoid power outages.

ComEd will trim trees, branches and vines that interfere or have the potential to interfere with power lines.

In some cases, tree removal may be required. The remaining tree stumps are treated with an approved herbicide to prevent future regrowth. Herbicide will be applied by state-licensed applicators.

All work is performed by trained, qualified arborists.

Protect Yourself From Energy Related Fraud

ComEd regularly receives reports of scammers posing as ComEd employees. These scammers go to great lengths to try and take your money. ComEd wants to help you be informed so you can protect yourself from fraud.

Scammers posed as ComEd employees may come to your home or business and request a payment. They could even call you from what appears to be a ComEd phone number. Always remember: ComEd will never call or come to your home or business to sell electricity or ask for personal information such as your account number, social security number, tax identification number or bank information. ComEd will never ask to see your bill or for you to make immediate payment in any form – by cash, check, prepaid cash card, or cryptocurrency such as bitcoin.

Don’t get scammed! If you experience suspicious behavior, call 1-800-EDISON-1 to report or click HERE to learn more.
