Duke Energy Tree Trimming Notice

City of Apopka Notice

Duke Energy - Distribution Vegetation Management - Work Areas of Apopka

Crews will be pruning trees along electric lines located within your municipal boundaries through the 1st  quarter of 2024. The map below shows the lines planned for trimming. Typically, crews start at the substation and work their way out/down the line. The tree crews will be cleaning up all debris associated with our maintenance activities. As a reminder, debris resulting from storm damage or other events unrelated to our maintenance activities is the responsibility of the homeowners. Part of the pruning activity will occur on lateral lines, some of which will require climbing in rear lot areas. This notification constitutes the notice required by Florida Statute 163.3209.  

Trees are a leading cause of power outages. Duke Energy’s progressive tree care practices help minimize outages during storms. 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 16 consecutive years. We 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.
