Boone, Logan

NOTICE TO CUSTOMERS – Manage Vegetation



To maintain necessary clearances for safe and reliable electric service, Appalachian Power Company plans to manage vegetation along the Van/Van portion of its 34 kV Distribution system in Logan and Boone Counties in WV.  On or about August 1st , 2022, a helicopter will begin trimming trees away from power lines.  A ground crew will follow up to remove tree trimmings from streams, roads and maintained areas.  In unmaintained or undeveloped areas, trimmings will remain on site so as to minimize soil disturbance and to promote biodegradation.


Rights-of-way in this area expected to be involved in the program are: RT 85 Bim, Rt 85 Bob White, Chap Road, County Highway 5, Gordon Road


Company representatives will be present at the time of the aerial saw work.  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:
