Trees & Vegetation
The management of trees and vegetation on VELCO’s rights-of-way is one of our most important jobs. Doing this job well is key to reliable service, especially in Vermont’s rugged and wooded landscape where lines cross many remote areas. The work also touches the thousands of people whose property is crossed by VELCO lines, and affects the plants and wildlife of our state.
