Tree Trimming Activities As Scheduled for 2017
Utility tree trimming work is being conducted in Shandon over the next 2 or more weeks. The work will be completed by an SCE&G contractor, Tree Inc or Asplundh. Some of the work will occur behind homes. If anyone is concerned about leaving rear gates unlocked or having pets in their back yard, please notify SCE&G before arrival. For additional information regarding utility tree trimming click here and also here. Citizens with specific questions or concerns should contact Forestry and Beautification at 803-545-3860 or SCE&G at 1-800-251-7234 to meet and discuss in advance of the work being completed.
The purpose of the trimming activities is to increase safety and reliability of the electric service. SCE&G reports an 89% improvement in reliability in vegetation related outages in areas where trimming is completed compared to a year ago. The trimming guidelines include removing vegetation within 8-12 feet below and beside the power lines and up to 20 feet above the power lines.
