Eversource Maintenance Notifications

eversource logo

Eversource is providing notice of planned and scheduled vegetation maintenance work on the transmission right-of-way (ROW) that is located within Amherst town limits this year. The planned maintenance will involve floor cutting, side pruning and the selective removal of hazard trees that are located along or just beyond the right-of-way edge.

Floor cutting is clearing all incompatible woody vegetation that will be greater than 12 feet tall this growing season to maintained floor/easement ROW width. Woody vegetation is removed around all pole/tower structures, guide wires, gates/barriers and all “off road” access roads. Incompatible woody vegetation is removed 30 feet back from primary road crossings and/or ROW wooden barrier. All woody vegetation shall be mowed or chipped and removed from ROW.

Side pruning and hazard tree removal is required to comply with our vegetation management clearance program requirements to ensure that vegetation does not contact the energized transmission system.

Property owners on the transmission right-of-way where this work is planned will be receiving letters and door hanger notices informing them of the scheduled vegetation maintenance in accordance with the current regulations.This work is being scheduled for the 2019 calendar year.


Below is a map that denotes the location of the right-of-way where work will be performed.


If you have any questions on the proposed work, please contact Shawn Giroux of Eversource at 413-787-9328.
