Needham Trees is a community group organized to protest the clear cutting of trees along the NSTAR transmission line.
We do not oppose NSTAR’s right to maintain the transmission line. We rely on NSTAR to ensure a steady power supply for all of our homes and businesses.
We do oppose the abrupt change in their management practices being employed by NSTAR.
For 48 years this transmission line have been managed through a system of trimming and tree removal only when it was necessary and only after communication with the abutter on the affected properties.
At no point has there been a power outage resulting from a tree hitting a transmission line. We have asked for information on the number of instances from NSTAR and to date they have not provided one.
Lacking any information that this is actually related to service we conclude that this change has more to do with the economics of maintaining their transmission and distribution lines at the lowest possible cost regardless of the impact on the neighbors.
Show your support for passage of the Needham Town Meeting resolution demanding Congress address the problem of unlimited corporate campaign spending. [more info at our site]
