At Eversource, we are dedicated to delivering reliable energy and providing excellent customer service. Our comprehensive vegetation management program includes year-round tree work to protect the electric system. Trees are the number one cause of outages during storms in Connecticut.
Statewide, our data shows a continued need for regular tree maintenance due to the challenges posed by drought, tree disease and more intense storms. A total of 4,193 roadside distribution miles are planned under the 2024 scheduled maintenance. Eversource's Vegetation Management team inspects and assesses trees along each circuit and performs & prioritizes tree work to maximize reliability for the greatest number of customers. Included in this mailing is a map of the town. The roads scheduled for vegetation assessment are highlighted. Scheduled maintenance tree work in your town is estimated to begin in January.
The enclosed Tree Reliability Scorecard provides a visual representation of vegetation management in your community.

We believe these enhanced communications make it easier than ever to understand how thoughtful tree work strengthens the grid. In the coming weeks, our expert Arborists plan to work closely with community leaders and residents to discuss plans before tree work begins.
