Utility Vegetation Management is a primary activity of all North American transmission and distribution utilities because tree contacts with power lines account for more than 30 per cent of power outages in North America, causing power failures, structure fires and serious property damage. North American utilities are obligated to maintain their rights-of-way to comply with North American Electricity Reliability Corporation (NERC) standards. For every dollar spent on utility vegetation management to keep power line right of ways clear of trees, saves many more dollars in damages. Every year, electric utilities invest time and money to make sure that millions of circuit-miles/kilometers of lines are kept clear and safe. Our Utility Vegetation Management Channel provides you with the latest information about technologies, companies, products and applications available in the marketplace today.
