JEA trimming trees in Atlantic Beach

JEA is trimming trees near power lines to better ensure that the utility provides consistent, reliable electrical service.

The seven- to eight-week project began Jan. 20. JEA says that it follows best tree-care practices by trimming trees throughout its service area every 2.5 years. The professional contractor hired by JEA, Trees LLC, uses proper arboricultural methods that are best for the long-term health of trees, and also removes potentially dangerous branches, the utility says.

The tree-trimmers ensure that there is a 10-foot clearance around electric lines, JEA says, and JEA offers chips from the trimmings to use as mulch.

Detailed information about JEA’s tree-trimming practices is posted at https://www.jea.com/About/Electric_Systems/Reliability/Vegetation_Management/Tree_Trimming/

For additional information, or to schedule a mulch delivery, call (904) 655-6050 or email jeatreecare@jea.com.
