• Duke Energy suspends Charlotte pesticide treatment


    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Duke Energy is reviewing a major policy after one of their programs sparked outrage in several Charlotte neighborhoods.

    A spokeswoman told Channel 9 a team is meeting Thursday to discuss its promotional strategy.

    It all started last month, when crews began treating trees with a pesticide to make them grow smaller. Some people said they never got much information, and now they're worried how safe it really is.

    Duke Energy suspended the program Monday, but more than 300 trees have already been treated.

    Channel 9 reporter Stephanie Coueignoux will have more on Eyewitness News at 5 p.m.
