What is the right balance for planting, and clearing, the right-of-way?
Join watershed groups, non-profits, state and federal organizations from across the Potomac watershed for an important discussion on managing highway and utility rights-of-way, as well as stormwater management areas. Regional power companies are responsible for reliable power and clearing transmission lines across the Bay watershed. State highway departments have varying rules on mowing and cutting back trees. Most subdivisions, business parks, and shopping centers have stormwater management “ponds” that are regulated, often to prevent tree planting. What is the balance between the need for increased tree canopy versus tree clearing to ensure reliable power, safe traffic, and dependable stormwater management areas?
