Dominion Energy cuts trees and brush along and adjacent to our rights of way to maintain safe, reliable and economic electric service. Tree trimming and vegetation management are important for keeping power lines and rights of way clear, which provides quicker access for our crews during service restoration and maintenance work.

The methods we use while performing this work reflect the importance of environmental stewardship. We follow ANSI (American National Standards Institution) A300 standards, Best Management Practices established by the International Society of Arboriculture, as well as Commission guidelines.

Our work methods, along with our efforts to educate the public about our Vegetation Management Program have been recognized by the National Arbor Day Foundation which awarded Dominion Energy designation as a Tree Line USA utility.
