The work is scheduled for Wednesday, June 26 from 8:30 a.m. to about 3:30 p.m. The trees will be cut down due to the potential of falling into power and fiber optic lines serving the Braeburn, Fish Lake and Lake Wenatchee areas.

The power will remain on throughout the tree removal operation. The utility\’s contractor, Kemp West, will have a flagger at the intersection of Hwy 207 and Braeburn Rd.
