Transmission Vegetation Management Projects

We maintain vegetation in and along more than 2,300 miles of transmission right-of-way corridors through Connecticut, Massachusetts and New Hampshire.

Each year we maintain about 25 percent of the rights of way by:

  • Performing Integrated Vegetation Management to maintain the cleared right of way
  • Trimming branches growing into the right of way towards the lines
  • Assessing and removing hazard trees from outside the maintained right of way or outside the easement
  • Performing ground and helicopter patrols to identify risks

We perform this work to prevent trees and non-compatible vegetation from from growing too close to lines. All work is performed in accordance with specifications conforming to utility industry best practices and compliance with federal management standards.
