PEPCO is planning tree work in the City to maintain clearance around their power distribution lines to maintain service reliability. Contractors will develop a scope of work for City trees and for trees on private property. No tree work will begin until after the planned work is agreed upon by the City, private tree owners and PEPCO. If trees on your private property will be impacted, you will be contacted by the planner. For further information, please contact Brenda Alexander at 240-487-3590 or firstname.lastname@example.org
