Our qualified tree personnel are trained to use integrated vegetation management (IVM) to inspect and clear vegetation that pose a threat to our distribution and transmission lines. IVM bases its practices on the voltage and type of line, as well as the type of vegetation and its proximity to the line.

Pruning and Safety Guidelines
Our methods systematically address vegetation that will interfere with the operation of power lines. We use specific information such as reliability data and other indications to prioritize lines for tree pruning and removal.
