Right of way (ROW) clearing and maintenance involves removing trees, bushes, and other growth that could prevent maintenance or installation crews from safely accessing utilities. Installing gates, culverts and roads making ROWs accessible is imperative keeping infrastructure operational.
Each season brings their own problems, making right of way maintenance a year-round necessity. In summer, dry conditions combined with overgrown plants can lead to fires; in winter, if the trees aren’t cut back or removed from the proximity of power lines, one heavy snowfall or freezing rain can lead to costly, lengthy power outages.
If paths to these places aren’t maintained, it will only take longer to solve the problem. It’s not just a smart decision– it’s a safe choice.
