Utility Right-of-Way Vegetation Control

VCS, Inc. is a pioneer and professional leader in selective vegetation management on utility rights-of-way. Beginning in the early 1960s as a research project for our founder’s master degree in wildlife and forestry, we have gained a reputation for high quality  services in New England, New York and Hawaii.

Our philosophy is to fulfill the requirements of state and federal regulations through the environmentally responsible application of Integrated Vegetation Management.

Our goal and objectives on a utility right-of-way are the maintenance and stabilization of early-successional (low growing) ecological communities that compete with tall vegetation; maintaining diverse vegetation communities below economically damaging heights to ensure the safe delivery of energy products.

A desirable side effect of these methods is much needed open land  habitat that benefits a wide range of wildlife—including many threatened or endangered animals, amphibians, insects and plants. These rights-of-way are excellent homes, breeding grounds, nurseries and food sources for the wildlife species our crews regularly come across including deer, rabbits, wild turkeys, songbirds and other foragers as well as coyotes, bobcats, black bears, eagles, owls and hawks.

The end result of a well maintained right-of-way is a landscape that benefits the utilities, its customers, the public-at-large and the environment.
