In response to the power outages from climate change related storms over the last few years, UI and the CT state goverment had come to the conclusion that trees are a danger to our power grid. They have created a policy that they can remove or trim any trees they deem to close to power lines without regard to property rights, town policy or ecological damage. Please come and speak up for the trees that help us to breath and mitigate some of the current pollution in CT.
