Eversource proposes massive tree cutting along transmission power lines!

Eversource wants to cut all trees within 100 feet of transmission power  lines running from the Northfield Substation, through the towns of Erving, Wendell, Montague, Leverett, Shutesbury, Pelham, Belchertown, Amherst and Granby, to the Ludlow Substation in Ludlow, crossing two Environmental Justice communities: Wendell and Amherst.

Eversource has filed with MEPA (Massachusetts Environmental Policy Act Office) in order to move forward with its plan to cut over 370 acres of trees along the transmission power line corridor.

Take action by sending a comment to MEPA!  Go HERE for an action guide which will give you all the info you need. Please share with family and friends. 

The original MEPA comment deadline was set for Monday August 22nd. We have heard that an extension to that deadline is being negotiated. Watch for updates!
