ComEd listens to concerns about tree trimming in DeKalb

Posted: Updated:

ComEd meets with community members and the DeKalb Parks Department after neighbors get angry over the trimming of trees near a nature trail.

The meeting gives attendees a chance to voice their opinions. ComEd spokesman Paul Callighan says the tree thinning was done to meet federal regulations.  He says the energy company wants to work with the park's department to bring back the native species and help with re-planting.

"What is done is done.  We need to have some sorts of assurances that we can rebuild this in a proper way.  We can't have you just say, 'Well the power lines are clear.  We're happy with that now,'  and just have them walk away and move on to other priorities," says trail user Keith Nyquist.

The DeKalb Parks Department also says it hopes to work with ComEd to come up with a solution.
