AEP trimming trees in Rancho Viejo

AEP crews will be in Rancho Viejo all week trimming trees that are near power lines.

The city says the trees along Carmen Avenue and Hidalgo Avenue are being cut back to reduce power outages during storms.

AEP will have a herbicide crew treating the trees with a tree growth regulator that helps inhibit the fast regrowth of trees once they are trimmed.
