NOTICE TO CUSTOMERS – Vegetation Management



To maintain necessary clearances for safe and reliable electric service, Appalachian Power Company plans to manage vegetation along the Point Pleasant/Industrial #2255603 portion of its 12 kilovolt distribution system in Mason County, WV.  On or about October 8th through December 2021. Contract crews will begin to trim and remove trees and brush, apply growth regulators to trees, 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: City of Point Pleasant, Main Street, Jericho Rd, Route 2, Tanglewood Dr, Oshel Rd, Ridge Rd, Jenkins Ln, Glade Ln, Greer Rd, Eight Mile Rd, Pierce Rd, Debbie Rd, Plants Ridge Rd, Thomas Ridge Rd, Bear Wallow Rd, Clinton Ln, Plain Valley Rd, Echard Chapel Rd,


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:
