Eversource Energy is actually making friends in Connecticut.

The company, which has been blasted for some of its previous storm-restoration efforts in the Nutmeg State, is being praised for expanding its clean-up efforts after Tropical Storm Henri to try to make it harder for future storms to cause outages.

Eversource is partnering with more than a dozen towns hit by Henri so that, in addition to removing trees damaged by the storm, it removes dead and dying trees that future storms could knock onto power lines. The company's effort is greatly appreciated by many of the towns because they have more decrepit trees than they can afford to cut down themselves.
