传输植被管理

The electric highway that transmits electricity across long distances is comprised of transmission lines. 通过综合植被管理计划, 我们维持的植被超过12个,500英里又150英里,全州000英亩的运输地役权. Our maintenance activities are necessary to provide reliable and economical service to all customers. 

割草

We clear vegetation and redefine the easement width with heavy-duty power equipment. 附近的植被结构, 长绳, 栅栏, 溪流或其他难以进入的区域可以用手工工具切割. 我们通常每六年割一次草. A combination of mowing and herbicide is used to manage fast-growing, tall, woody species. This cycle is a best practice and also the most economical method to ensure a safe and reliable electric system. Our integrated vegetation management approach helps to promote and establish a stable, 多样化的, 道路右侧的低矮植物群落, which reduces the potential for soil erosion and is also extremely beneficial for wildlife.

如果你是业主,如果你愿意,你可以更经常地割路. 然而, 如果你想更经常地割草,但又不拥有土地, 你必须先得到土地所有人的许可.

危险的树切割

“危险的树”是地役权上的死树, 死亡, diseased or severely leaning that could damage the transmission facilities when falling. 至少一年一次, all transmission lines are patrolled by air and by ground to locate dangerous trees so that they may be removed safely.

树删除

我们把不相容的树木从地役区移走. These are trees or other types of vegetation which grow too tall to remain on the right-of-way, 并可能威胁到持续的安全, 输电线路运行可靠. 有时这些不相容的树是由业主种植的. 不幸的是, they must be removed along with any incompatible trees which may have seeded in naturally.

一般, 灌木, 菜园, grasses and low-growing trees with a mature height of less than 15 feet are allowed on the easement area as long as they do not block or restrict access to the area, 而不是被安置在一个可能威胁到持续安全的地方, 输电线路运行可靠.

在地役地内种植

Georgia Power has determined specific trees and ornamentals acceptable for planting within the easement. In order to qualify for consideration, these trees must be planted in a landscaped area. This area shall be maintained by the property owner in such a fashion that it is obvious to all that it is a landscaped area. If any trees are planted in an area where right-of-way crews could mistake it for "brush,“它可能会被削减.

一般, 灌木, 菜园, grasses and low-growing trees with a mature height of less than 15 feet are allowed on the easement area as long as they do not block or restrict access to the area, 而不是被安置在一个可能威胁到持续安全的地方, 输电线路运行可靠.

除草剂的应用程序

Crews using low-volume backpack sprayers apply herbicides to selectively remove incompatible tall-growing species. 只使用不受限制的除草剂, and the application crews are trained to identify and target the tall and fast-growing incompatible species on the right-of-way.

修剪

We remove limbs from trees off the easement area that are growing into the easement space. 修剪可以由工作人员利用机械树木修剪设备来完成, 空中升降卡车或攀登人员手动. 修剪周期从2年到15年不等.
