Vegetation Management

EQUS' vegetation management program operates on a five-year cycle. For that cycle to be effective, the vegetation activity in our Service Areas needs to achieve enough clearance to maintain the line for five years. EQUS also uses a brush mower for larger slash locations and works diligently to facilitate the effective scheduling of both manpower and equipment to maintain an effective and cost efficient vegetation management program.

For information on areas that are scheduled for vegetation management, please contact your Area Office.
