National Grid is deploying forestry contractors this summer (from mid-May through August 2024) to trim trees and vegetation to protect electric lines that run along 20 miles of the Albany-Hudson Electric Trail (AHET) from the Town of Nassau in Rensselaer County south through the Columbia County towns of Chatham, Kinderhook, Stuyvesant, Stockport, and Greenport.  Tree trimming will occur on weekdays only, intermittently with no set schedule during the three-month period.  For public safety, National Grid’s forestry contractors may install signs temporarily closing individual trail sections between public road crossings as tree cutting progresses along the corridor.  Trail users encountering “Trail Closed” signage will need to turn around or follow local roads to detour around specific daily trail closures.


The Greenway has posted information about the temporary/daily closures on the AHET portion of our website:
