CAPE CORAL, Fla. — Some trees in a NE Cape Coral neighborhood were awkwardly trimmed by LCEC in order to keep branches away from power lines.

Neighbors near Kismet Parkway and Andalusia Boulevard were left speechless when they opened their doors to trees in their yards cut in an L-shape or sliced down the middle.

LCEC said its Vegetation Management program offers free tree trimming in three cases; power outages, customer call-ins, and routine maintenance cycles.

Their crews follow guidelines from the National Arborist Association, which generally advise cutting any branch within 10 feet of a primary power line. Then it’s up to the property owner to manicure whatever remains of the tree.

Some neighbors left with lopsided trees said they were concerned it could topple over onto their home. LCEC recommends hiring a third-party tree trimming service after they’re done.
