Passing along this notification from BGE about tree trimming in the Laurel area in 2022.


Current regulations, arising from the Maryland Public Service Commission (PSC) Rule Making 43 proceeding (RM 43) following the enactment of the 2011 Maryland Electricity Service Quality and Reliability Act, require utilities to notify elected officials of routine vegetation management work within their jurisdictions on an annual basis.  This includes routine tree trimming and removals around BGE facilities as well as mowing along our transmission line rights-of-way.

BGE contractors will be performing vegetation management on overhead distribution lines in your jurisdiction during 2022. BGE will continue to communicate with customers using tools such as door hangers, one-on-one conversations, etc. Customers can also go to to view the tree trimming schedule.
