It's Tree Trimming Season

The Burlington Electric Department, together with the Burlington Parks, Recreation, & Waterfront Department, is about to begin our annual tree trimming maintenance program to trim trees that have grown around power lines throughout the City. The program's purposes are to ensure continued safe and reliable delivery of electric service to our customers and to minimize unplanned power outages for the Burlington community.

We invite members of the community to let us know if you notice overgrown trees that appear to be encroaching on power lines, and we will investigate. Please report potential tree issues to BED using our online form or by calling BED at 802-865-7463.

Thank you for your continued support while we work to provide safe and reliable electricity to our community.
