Utility Right of Ways

Utility Right of Ways are under scrutiny from federal regulations to assure that obstacles do not interfere with power distribution. The companies that own the right of ways spend a lot of money managing these areas to make sure trees do not get close to power wires and disrupt distribution. Planting and managing native material under or along these rights of ways can provide benefit and potentially reduce costs.

Benefits of Using Native Materials in Right of Ways Include:

  • Management Minimization
  • Maximize Habitat Benefit
  • Wildlife Corridor Creation
  • Pollinator Habitat Creation
