Vegetation Management Plan

The Vegetation Management Plan (VMP) addresses HG&E’s plans for managing vegetation along rights-of-way (ROW) zones associated with gas and electrical transmission and distribution operations. HG&E provides this vegetation planning service in City Hall to the approximately 8 miles of ROWs along the three canals in Holyoke, Massachusetts.

The plan will be in effect during the five year period of 2018 through 2022, in compliance with the Rights-of-Way (ROWs) Management regulations of 333 CMR 11.00 (see Appendix B). Management techniques may include a combination of methods, such as cutting, mowing, and applying herbicide. 

The Department of Agricultural Resources will conduct a regional hearing to receive public comment on HG&E's proposed Vegetation Management Plan.
