• GMP awards tree-trimming contract to out-of-state company
     | January 10,2013

    Green Mountain Power Corp. has awarded a statewide tree trimming contract to Asplundh, a Pennsylvania-based company. The three-year contract, which accounts for half of GMP’s tree-related work, could mean a loss of work for local tree companies that worked for the former Central Vermont Public Service Corp.

    GMP spokeswoman Dorothy Schnure said Thursday the contract with Asplundh will save ratepayers $500,000 a year. She also said companies that lost out on the tree-trimming bid will still be able to bid on the remaining work, including transmission trimming, tree removal and capital construction work.

    Schnure said Asplundh plans on hiring local tree trimmers.
