Mr WR:

Weston should mandate that homeownwers trim tree branches that are within 12 feet of powerlines. I grew up in a town that required you to trim tree branches that hang within 12 feet of powerlines, in another state that is prone to tornadoes. I can count on one hand the number of power outages during the first 20+ years of my life. What is wrong with Connnecticut? Clean up your trees once in a while. It will make your yard look less sloppy, too. The costs of tree pruning are far less than the cost of multi-day power outages. If individuals won't be responsible, then the town or CL&P should add it in to the cost of running business.
