Tree trimming on hold

Jul 26, 2011 9:56:00 AM - thestate.com
Tree trimming is suspended indefinitely in downtown Columbia neighborhoods.

“At this point, we don’t have a definitive time frame as to when we might resume,” SCE&G spokesman Eric Boomhower said Monday.

City officials are pressing the Cayce-based utility for changes that lessen pruning that some neighborhood groups say is too drastic.

A coalition of Columbia groups Monday also called for more attention to appearance in trimming trees near overhead power lines.

SCE&G is engaging in “aggressive tree-cutting” that is destroying the canopy of trees in several neighborhoods, Ryan Nevius of Sustainable Midlands said.
