Integrated Vegetation Management

When developing new transmission, a best practice is using processes that take into account local community  and landowner feedback to form best practices and identify techniques that can avoid or mitigate potential damage from new development. One such practice is Integrated Vegetation Management (IVM), a process of managing vegetation under a transmission line through the planting of native, low-growing plant species. This allows developers to limit tree growth under transmission lines, while also introducing new native plants that can provide habitat for wildlife. Check our infographic on IVM below, and our Clean Energy Transmission Map to learn about transmission projects in your state.
