Vegetation Management & Land Clearing

The company goal is to maintain a clear right of way alongside major roads and residential areas in order to prevent electrical outages. We have a fleet of on-road and off-road vehicles to work on vegetation management contracts. Most utilities work on a four or five-year trimming cycle based on the specie growth pattern. 

In the past five years, there has been a steady increase in dying, dead or diseased trees. The spread of the Emerald Ash Borer and the Asian Long Horned Beetle has added to the diseased trees work load in recent years. Ironwood Heavy Highway, LLC has a highly skilled tree climbing group whom can climb trees that are off-road and selected to be removed. We plan to maintain approximately 2,000 miles of transmission and distribution lines in 2018.

When power lines have not been properly maintained, we may have to go through and start a land clearing project to clear the right away area over again. There has been a significant increase over the years in the utility industry for capital spending to build new or update existing transmission and distribution lines.
