NES Mailing

Most folks in the neighborhood have likely received a postcard from Nashville Electric Service recently regarding upcoming tree trimming in Sylvan Park.

For those of you who haven't received the card, NES is preparing for its "second phase" of tree trimming, one that it expects to be much "less aggressive" than the first phase it conducted in the neighborhood in 2002. The goal of the trimming is to keep trees alive and healthy while ensuring that they do not interfere with electric lines.

Work planners plan to meet with individual households in person or to leave a door hanger with specific information about the work to be done on each property in the near future. NES has also dedicated a specific phone number, (615) 695-7400, for tree trimming questions. The second link above connects to NES' tree trimming Frequently Asked Questions page, too.

NES conducts its tree trimming program to reduce occurrences of power outages in the area. I know that this program is controversial and frustrating for many people, and communicating with NES in advance (as early as possible) seems to help more than anything else. If you are concerned about how this upcoming trimming may affect your property, please go ahead and contact NES now to get more information.
