Huntsville Utilities Tree Trimming Huntsville Utilities will be sending a letter to every mountain resident affected by the pending tree trimming.  These letters will have a time, date & location for the resident to meet and talk with a HSV Utilities Representative about the trimming on their property.  The timetable for the letters has not been set.  But all meetings will be conducted before the trimming starts sometime this winter. UPDATE: I received a call from Huntsville Utilities with an update to the tree trimming on the mountain. They are currently trimming on Monte Sano Blvd & Nolen as of this morning and will continue on into the state park. This trimming is for a different substation than the majority of the mountain. These affected residents were notified by letter and the public meeting was held last April.
