I live in Maryland. My property is split by a high voltage power line right of way. Unfortunately, the house is sited in a very narrow part of the property and is just outside the outer edge of the right of way. When I bought this place, there were lots of small trees, shrubs and topped trees so the lines and towers were obscured.
BGE cut heavily 3 years ago and made an enormous mess alongside the house. Now they're coming back again and the forester said they're taking all the trees from the right of way *plus* they're cutting trees from my property.
I've complained to the county executive's office. They're having someone from that office meet with me and a PR person from BGE to "discuss" what BGE will do.
I was also just informed that BGE will have some documents they want me to sign. I suspect this is going to be something saying I'll take some small sum of money for the trees.
My problem is, I want to keep the trees, and I really feel this ugly clearing has lowered the value of my property.
Can anyone advise me on what I might be asked to sign, and what recourse I have, if any?
