Shame on San Isabel Electric On Wednesday April 3rd, I came home to find many trucks along my road, and many trees cut down along and past my northern property line, and one small pinon cut down near my back door, that was very special to me. I have watched that tree grow for almost 17 years.
No one told me about this, when it would be done or why! They had marked the ground with flags a while ago, but nothing was mentioned about this. It was SO invasive and such a mess, I was in shock.
I talked with their manager by phone, told him what happened, and he was told I had been contacted.
That was a big lie! He was very apologetic and understood why I was so upset.
They should have contacted me and met with me to show me where, how and why they were doing this. I found out they will be replacing the underground electric lines and need 10’ clear either side of the line. I understand that, but the small pinon tree near my back door did not have to be cut down. They should have used their heads before just destroying trees without thinking about someone else’s property and the importance of trees in general.
I also had to show the lead guy where my leach field is and that they need to steer clear of it also or they will have to pay to fix it.
Just because a large company needs to do work does not mean they should just trespass on my property, and destroy trees without my knowledge or consent.
