Environmental Stewardship

Electric utilities use a combination of control methods to provide vegetation management using the Integrated Vegetation Management (IVM) system. IVM involves a planned and systematic process of determining the best-suited method for managing vegetation on individual sites that consider compatible and incompatible vegetation, action threshold, and evaluates, selects, and implements the most appropriate control methods to achieve established objectives.

Control methods may include a variety of methods based on environmental impact and anticipated effectiveness along with site characteristics, social, economics, and current land use factors.

Best Management Practices

Mowbray’s Tree Service endorses this technology by following science-based best management practices including ANSI – A300 (Part 1 and 7), Tree Care Operations – Tree, Shrub, and Other Woody Plant Maintenance – Standard Practices (Pruning and Integrated Vegetation Management a. Electric Utility Rights-of-way).
In addition, we also endorse the companion publications for both standards published by the International Society of Arboriculture; Best Management Practices for Utility Pruning of Trees, Integrated Vegetation Management and Closed Chain of Custody which can be utilized when requested by Utility Companies.

Supplemental IVM Programs

Tailored To Your Needs

Mowbray’s Tree Service can supplement a utility’s IVM program by using the various control methods to inhibit tall-growing and noxious vegetation, converting the ROW to a lush low growing shrub/grass/forb ecosystem that will not cause power outages, pose a fire risk, or impede access to the power lines.
