Transmission System Vegetation Management Program
Tall-growing vegetation that is currently or will soon be a hazard to the line will be removed. Vegetation that will grow tall will be selectively eliminated before it reaches a height or density to begin competing with low-growing species. Cut-stump or follow- up herbicide treatments on re-sprouting-type species will be carried out to ensure that the roots are killed. Desirable low-growing plants will not be disturbed. Only selective vegetation control methods that have little potential to harm non-target vegetation will be used.
