The City of Norcross has experienced several outages in the last few weeks. As a certified Tree City, we are challenged with maintaining our beautiful trees and tree canopies around our power lines. We walk a fine line between trimming limbs around power lines while mitigating impact on the tree canopies. With trees, comes the ever present squirrel. Many of our outages are caused by squirrels on the lines. We’ve also experienced several storms in the last month. We make every effort to respond quickly with minimum impact on our community, recognizing the inconvenience this causes. We will also be working with the City’s arborist for possible solutions regarding tree trimming to help mitigate the outages.
