SOUTH ORANGE, NJ - Jaflo Tree Service, an electrical line clearance contractor, has been hired by PSE&G to begin trimming trees near power lines in an effort to ensure safety and reliability of electrical service throughout the Village. Work was slated to begin on Tuesday.

Most South Orange properties have power lines in the backyards which will require allowing access for work crews to perform necessary maintenance on your property. PSE&G’s tree trimming program follows the guidelines established by the National Arborist Association and the International Society of Arboriculture. Certifications held by staff members include New Jersey Certified Tree Experts and Certified Arborists.

All of the necessary tree work will be done without expense to the property owner. Jafflo’s crews will be in white trucks with green lettering and will be working Monday through Thursday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Before performing work on your property a representative from Jaflo Tree Service will be stopping by your property to discuss any maintenance that needs to take place.  If Jaflo misses you at home they will leave a yellow door tag shown HERE. When you get this yellow tag, please take a moment to fill it out and place it back on your door to assist South Orange in keeping these power lines safe and reliable.
