Utility Right-of-Way

 

Advantages of Herbicide Application
 
Cost Effective
  • Herbicide application requires less labor and equipment than mechanical methods of control such as mowing and cutting 
Long Lasting Effects
  • Herbicide use offers residual effects (meaning re-treatment is only needed every few years), whereas mechanical methods require much more frequent attention
  • The use of selective herbicides targets only unwanted plants. Desirable low-growing shrubs, grasses, and flowers are undisturbed. This prevents erosion and has been proven to enhance wildlife habitat within utility rights-of-ways
