Buckeye REC right-of-way (ROW) mowing crews and contractors complete hundreds of miles of mowing, herbicide application and tree trimming annually. We maintain 2600 miles of power line and the majority is in forested areas. Our annual budget for this work is over $2 million dollars. The Emerald Ash Borer beetle continues to cause extensive damage and die-off of the Ohio ash tree population. Most of the dying and dead trees that fell on BREC lines are ash. We refer to the “off right-of-way” trees that are overhanging the lines or are dying/dead as “danger trees”. Buckeye REC crews and contractors remove over 3000 of these “danger trees” annually to prevent outages before the trees fell. Over 74% were ash trees. In the past three years, 10,000 “off Right-of-Way” trees that were in danger of falling on the lines, and causing damage and outages, were removed by ground crews and helicopters. Most of our outages are caused by trees outside of our right-of ways. Lines are constantly patrolled, and our members also let us know when they spot a potential problem and we get to them as we are able. ... See MoreSee Less
