Tolland's Troublesome Trees Getting a Trim

A three-year program is under way.

Residents will be seeing more and more of those orange vehicles with the buckets on top of them around town. 

And other tree trucks. 

Tolland is currently in the initial phase of what Town Manager Steven Werbner called "a proactive tree-trimming program," in his latest report to the Town Council. 

The services are being provided through a Local Capital Improvement Program to, "address trees that need trimming/removal in order to reduce the impact of future storm related damages and power outages," Werbner said in the report. 
Connecticut Light & Power has hired Asplundh to trim "where needed" on the power line sides of roads, he said. 

Crews from the town are trimming on the opposite side, Werbner said in the report. 

Werbner said the program involves work performed in three phases over three years.

Yes, they certainly have been 'proactive'. I also wish they had cleaned up after themselves and corrected damage to property. My yard now has 10 tree stumps needing grinding/removal(not to mention craters deep enough to tip a lawn tractor left by dropping and leaving the trees for months) and I certainly do not have funds to do that.............save CL&P money in repairs and create a mess for Tolland residents. Glad that's working for you.
