Right of Way & Utility Clearing

Right of Way/Utility clearing refers to the process of clearing vegetation and other obstructions along the path of utility lines or rights-of-way. Utility companies and land management agencies often perform this type of clearing to ensure the safe and efficient operation of utility infrastructure, such as power lines, gas pipelines, telecommunications cables, and transportation corridors.

Our Process

Step 1: Assessment

Assess the area to be cleared for Right of Way/Utility purposes. Identify any trees, vegetation, structures, or obstacles that may need to be removed to ensure unobstructed access to utilities or the designated right of way.

Step 2: Obtain Permits and Permissions

Obtain the necessary permits and permissions required for the clearing process. Coordinate with local government agencies, utility companies, or property owners to ensure compliance with regulations and obtain the necessary approvals.

Step 3: Clearing and Maintenance

Clear the designated area using appropriate equipment and techniques while prioritizing safety. Remove trees, vegetation, and any other obstructions to create a clear pathway or access to utilities. Dispose of cleared debris responsibly according to local regulations.

Step 4: Regular Monitoring

Regularly monitor the cleared area to ensure ongoing maintenance and compliance with Right of Way/Utility requirements. Conduct periodic inspections to identify any regrowth, encroachments, or potential hazards. Address vegetation management needs, such as mowing, pruning, or herbicide application, to maintain a clear and accessible Right of Way/Utility area.
