A Message from Duke Energy
Duke Energy will be conducting tree trimming in the Winter Garden area beginning in late May. We work to balance aesthetics with our goal to provide safe, reliable power to the households and businesses that depend on us. Now more than ever, energy has become a critical part of our daily lives. Trees are a main source of outages. It is our responsibility to ensure power lines are clear of vegetation and other obstructions.
Even a brief interruption can cause a big disruption to your daily routine. As hurricane season begins, we are focused on minimizing storm outages before they happen by following proactive tree care practices.
However, we still work to balance the need for reliable electric power with sensitivity for the environment and tree health. Tree crews use a technique known as directional pruning, which is endorsed by The National Arbor Day Foundation and the International Society of Arboriculture. Qualified employees are supervised by certified arborists. Duke Energy Florida has been recognized for its tree care practices with the distinctive Tree Line USA designation from The National Arbor Day Foundation for 15 consecutive years. More information about our pruning techniques and vegetation management can be found on our website.
Should you have any questions, or need more information, you can always reach us at 800.700.8744. We look forward to working with you and the City of Winter Garden.
