WATCH: Helicopter Tree-Trimming in Action

YouTube video shows what to expect in Washington Township beginning Monday.

As was announced earlier this week, Jersey Central Power & Light will be conducting tree-trimming in Washington Township from Monday, Feb. 18 to April 1.

Unlike in previous years, this tree-trimming will be conducted by way of helicopter. The township has advised residents there is no cause for alarm, and police patrols will be on hand when necessary.


Thanks to Long Valley Patch reader "Angelo," here's a YouTube video showing what tree-trimming via helicopter looks like.

Please note, this video did not originate from Washington Township, as the cutting has yet to begin.

Well, I'm sure helicopter tree trimming will cross the "noise pollution barrier", but I would far rather put up with that than witness again the massive spraying of herbicides from equipment mounted on huge trucks under the power lines in this neighborhood. JCPL informed residents close to the power lines last year that they would be "trimming". Their interpretation of "Trimming" involved the application of herbicide that blew over the nearest houses and was powerful enough to destroy 15 to 20 foot high shrubs within a month.
