As part of its five-year cycle to maintain public safety and electric system reliability, Dominion Energy South Carolina will begin pruning trees throughout parts of lower Charleston County in the coming weeks.
The project - which will extend across approximately 90 miles of overhead distribution lines to include sections of Adams Run, Hollywood, and Meggett - is set to begin in early June and will take approximately 5 months to complete. Property owners will be notified by mail or email approximately two weeks prior to the start of trimming in their area.
Overgrown vegetation and tree limbs are the number one cause of power outages, and trimming on a routine cycle can protect the long-term health of the tree.
