"This time of year the buses, they start hitting the trees and the bus barn gives us a list of places to trim," explained Greg Mizell, Lines Superintendent for Aztec Electric Department. Crews have been trimming trees on bus routes for about a month.

"It was really really bad this year," commented Mizell.

Normally the city trims trees only on city easement, but when clearing the bus routes, they remove overhanging limbs even if the tree is in a front yard.

They run the trimmings through their chipper and take the chips to a site near North Light Plant Road for recycling. Mizell expects trimming to be finished by the end of the week.
