"Beginning with the end in mind" is the idea behind a vegetation management plan (VMP). Vegetation management is essential to providing safe, high-quality, reliable, and affordable electricity. Trees are a valuable asset in public, private, and commercial landscapes. They help the environment and add beauty. Unfortunately, trees can be a major challenge to providing safe, reliable and affordable power. Trees are one of the major causes of power interruptions.
Carroll Electric Cooperative Corporation's VMP was developed to help provide members with the best service possible.
Our VMP uses high-powered equipment effective for the terrain and tested products that have been properly registered for use with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). All herbicides are applied strictly in accordance with prescribed regulations.
