    Leveraging resources through partnerships and recognition programs


    In an operational environment  where allocation of time and resources is increasingly constrained, vegetation managers and system foresters are called to make key decisions related to partners, projects and community outreach. Those projects are typically aligned with corporate initiatives and used to enhance brand, increase positive relationships with regulators and enhance EMS. Choosing the right partner, setting measures of success and quantifying the return on investment can add value to a maintenance program from license to operate to increased customer satisfaction. 

    Many opportunities are offered within your regions and valuable data is available to assist in making those decisions. Alignments between vegetation management activities and environmental stewardship objectives are key to successful, sustainable partnerships. GIS technology can be leveraged to highlight potential projects and partnership locations, as demonstrated over a transmission system in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States.
