NOTICE TO CUSTOMERS – Appalachian Power Vegetation Management


To maintain necessary clearances for safe and reliable electric service, Appalachian Power plans to manage vegetation along a portion of its 4, 12 and 34.5 kilovolt distribution system in Raleigh County, W.Va.

On or about March 23, 2020, contract crews will begin to trim and remove trees and brush 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 to minimize soil disturbance and to promote biodegradation.

Rights of way in the area involved in the program are:

Beckley-McCreery , Beckley-Scott Ave circuits in Beckley. North Beckley-Maxwell Hill, North Beckley-North Kanawha and North Beckley-Pikeview circuits in Beckley and Dry Hill areas. Poleyard-Skelton circuit in the Skelton area. Whitestick-Cranberry circuit in the Cranberry, Beckley area.

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, please contact:
