Legal Notice


To maintain necessary clearances for safe and reliable electric service, Appalachian Power Company plans to manage vegetation along the Montgomery – Fourth Avenue portion of its 12 kilovolt distribution system in Kanawha and Fayette Counties, WV. On or about May 31, 2021 contract crews will begin to trim and remove trees and brush and apply herbicides along our rights-of-way. Work will be done in accordance with International Society of Arboriculture guidelines and take into account factors such as tree species, growth characteristics, line voltage, etc. In unmaintained or undeveloped areas cuttings will remain on site so as to minimize soil disturbance and to promote biodegradation.

Rights-of-way in this area involved in the program are: Throughout the city of Montgomery, Rt. 61, Armstrong Creek Rd., Adena Village, Montgomery Heights, Deepwater Mtn., Elm Rd., Riverside St., Boonesborough Rd., and Kanawha Ave. in Smithers.

Representatives will attempt to personally contact resident property owners at least seven business days prior to working on their property. Specifics regarding your property may be discussed at that time. If you are a nonresident property owner and have questions regarding our right-of-way maintenance they may be directed to:
