 Tree Work Notice - Vegetation Management Maintenance

EUSTIS, Fla. (March 13, 2018) – As we know trees are a leading cause of power outages. Duke Energy’s progressive tree care practices will help minimize outages during storms and reduce restoration time following storm-related damage. Part of Duke’s maintenance program involves vegetation management within the right-of-way. They will be cutting, pruning, and possibly removing trees in the following area within the next couple weeks: Eustis South to Sorrento that will start at 1 West Plaza Drive, Eustis, FL 32726 and end at 33125 County Road 437, Sorrento, FL 32776 (9.79 mile project).

They will ensure the balance for reliable electric power with sensitivity for the environment and aesthetics within considerations. Affected landowners will be notified individually as the project proceeds and prior to work commencing on their property. Although, Duke Energy does not anticipate any power interruptions at this time, should an outage become necessary to complete, they will notify the affected customers in advance.
