If you'd like to talk to someone about the trees in your yard, you can call Dominion Energy at 1-800-251-7234 and place a work order to have an arborist come assess your trees before they're trimmed. They will be mailing postcards approximately 2 weeks in advance of trimming. If you do not receive a postcard and think you should have, please also contact 1-800-251-7234 and speak with a representative. It's important to note if you signed up for electronic communication with Dominion, you will NOT be receiving a postcard but will receive an email instead.
