Right of Way Vegetation Management

A Superior Forestry Crew at work on a utility right of way

Specializing in low-volume application

Transmission lines, distribution lines, and pipe lines. Low volume application has economic as well as environmental benefits.

Benefits of low-volume application:

  • With low-volume foliar, only the targeted species (like hardwoods and pine) are treated. Plants that benefit wildlife, like forbs, increase in coverage due to decreased competition from the target species.
  • Low-volume foliar decreases application cost because the mix is applied only to the target species.
