Rights of Way Management

Trees are considered parts of a place’s natural beauty, however trees and vegetation are factors that can lead to common problems and can cause power outages. It is therefore highly imperative to work constantly in order to balance the aesthetic concerns with the responsibility to deliver a reliable electric system for millions of businesses and households.

Managing Vegetation Promotes Better Transmission System

Managing vegetation within major electric facilities is an essential maintenance activity for the safety and reliability of utility’s operation. Switchyards, substations and many other facilities need perpetual maintenance to be able to maintain a vegetation-free environment. Vegetation maintenance and treatment must be facilitated annually and in some particular climatic regions, various treatments might be required.

Invasive weeds

Transmission lines are viewed as super highways of electric grid and these allow large amounts of electricity to be transferred across countries starting from power plants up to the end users. As part of the continuing effort of enhancing service reliability, there are management programs geared towards treating tree stump and woody plants and managing vegetation along miles of transmission lines. 

To ensure safety and reliability of utilities, it is essential that existing easement rights on vegetation management be enforced. Removal of trees underneath high-voltage lines instead of pruning serves to reduce chances of vegetation contact.

Vegetation removal

Nevertheless, proper vegetation management does not really involve removal of the entire vegetation at all times. Compatible plants or shrubs that do not really interfere with the electric facilities are commonly not disturbed. 

Transmission of the line corridors must include varied mixture of grasses, low-growing shrubs and many other types of ground cover mostly preferred by birds and other small animals to promote thriving wildlife habitats. In such case, well-managed right of way offers cover and food needed to survive and at the same time, the reliability that electric customers need.
