People living near Riverside Park did not have power Tuesday morning.
Hundreds of branches grew around and were tangled on power lines behind several houses.
The American Electric Power Company sent out workers, not only to trim the trees but to cut down thicker trees that were resting against the power lines.
AEP representatives say that they have a cycled schedule to cut down trees around the area every few years.
Neighbors were upset that they did not have electricity for a few hours and that no one had maintained the area.
"At one point they were just weeds that grew into trees,” says Kristie Kime who lives in the Riverside Neighborhood. “The trees now have grown into the wires and burnt the wires. So, that myself and all of my neighbors are now without power and are suffering because he did not clean his easement."
The crew was almost done cleaning the debris and the power to the area should be restored shortly.
