What is Utilities Vegetation Management?
The Utilities Vegetation Management process involves coordination between internal vegetation management team members, third-party (external) contractors/vendors and in-house legal team members to manage the ongoing maintenance of tree and plant life that surrounds the company's network of energy transmission lines and facilities. Vegetation management team members periodically inspect tree/plant life to ensure that it is properly maintained. When maintenance is required, third-party contractors/vendors are assigned a work area to perform tree trimming and brushing as-needed.
