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.
