Asplundh came thru yesterday and cut tree branches around the electric wires, maybe before the storm would have been better, or maybe Delmarva Power is trying to cover up the fact those branches haven't been cut in a while.
anyway for some reason they tossed the cut branches on the ground
From Delmarva Power FAQ on tree cutting http://www.delmarva.com/home/emergency/veg/faq/
Q | Will you clean up and remove the debris?
A | When pruning is done as part of our scheduled tree maintenance program, debris will be removed. We will not remove debris from storm-damaged trees.
But the trees were not storm damaged!!!!
