Vegetation Management
Pipelines and Vegetation Management


Vegetation Management is important in maintaining the pipeline industry infrastructure as well. Gas, chemical and oil pipelines snake through every region of the country, often unseen except for marker posts indicating a pipeline right-of-way (ROW). The pipeline right-of-way is strip of land usually about 25 to 150 feet wide containing the pipeline.

Pipeline right-of-ways are often recognizable as corridors that are clear of trees, buildings or other structures except for the pipeline markers. Sometimes ROWs may not have markers clearly present and may only be indicated by cleared corridors of land.

Keeping right-of-ways clear is essential to assure the safe operation of electrical lines and pipelines, as well as to enable the proper access to the ROW for maintenance, inspections and upgrades.
