Client: BC Hydro

 

MLF was contracted by BC Hydro to participate in the vegetation management program. The program was designed to manage the vegetation beneath Hydro power lines while maintaining a percentage for the purposes of wildlife and habitat. Special considerations are taken whenever a riparian area is encountered in order to protect the water course and all its attributes important to both human and animal use. The hazard tree component was designed to not only identify those trees which were in imminent danger of failing onto Hydro lines but to identify those which were not immediately hazardous but above a safety threshold and requiring removal to avert the hazard.
