Powel Inc. is hosting a free webinar Wednesday, July 27 at 2 p.m. CST to discuss best practices for utility arborists to meet federal, state and local regulations for vegetation management programs.

The presenter, Paul Hurysz, spent many years overseeing right of way maintenance for large utilities and forestry contractors. Utility Foresters are under increasing, and in some cases conflicting, pressure from national and local regulators.
NERC requires a well-documented plan to ensure reliability. Other entities want to protect the tree rights of property owners. Utilities are caught in the middle, and it’s forcing utility arborists to change they way they do business.
Powel, Inc. will share its analysis of current regulations, emerging trends and a sneak peak at the technologies that other utilities are using to comply.
