Stop PECO from cutting down our Trees!
Sign this petition to let PECO and the Pennsylvania Utilities Commision know that you oppose PECO's devasting “upgrade” plan which includes the complete elimination of over 120 trees and draconian pruning of many more, leaving them grotesque, misshapen stubs.
(NOTE: After you sign this petition, you will be asked to donate money to "support our cause." That is actually a request from iPetition to donate money to them to run this website. Be advised that such donations do not go toward the Save Our Tree Canopy group.)
Yes, we may acknowledge the need for improved energy infrastructure, but not the one they propose. They need to move the utilities underground in Swarthmore. That is the only real way to reduce power dips and outages, especially in the face of increased severe weather due to climate change. That is the way to enable more street trees without annual arboreal hack-jobs by Asplundh and PECO. That is the way to maintain the beauty of our community, prevent excessive water run-off, enhance safety, and Save Our Tree Canopy!
This petition is open to the entire Swarthmore community, whether you live, work, study or play here.
