A Message from BGE about Owen Brown
BGE is committed to providing you with safe and reliable energy. As part of this commitment, we maintain trees and vegetation near energy rights of way. BGE's Forestry Operations staff works with specially trained professional contractors to prune and remove any trees that may interfere with the power lines.
In the coming weeks BGE will be clearing vegetation along the company's overhead transmission line rights of way in Owen Brown and Oakland Mills. Our vegetation management strategy to protect power lines from trees and branches is based on a four-to-five-year trimming cycle and is supplemented by routine inspections and reliability performance data.
For preventive maintenance, BGE follows accepted utility clearance standards, the best management practices outlined in Maryland's Tree Expert License Law and the A300 standards for pruning established by the American National Standards Institute. Our vegetation management program strives to minimize the impact on Maryland's tree canopy while maintaining your service reliability.
If you have any questions, please contact BGE at 1-800-685-0123 or visit us at http://www.bge.com/safetyreliability/reliability/treetrimming/pages/default.aspx
