Trees and Lines

Utility vegetation management (UVM) manages risks and controls vegetation that could potentially threaten power lines, railways, roadways, etc. It is perhaps one of the most important fields of environmental impact in the 21st century and is especially important in the U.S., where it is the largest factor in managing outages and the reliability of utilities.In Trees & Lines utility vegetation management podcast, veteran Phil Charlton and Iapetus COO Tej Singh discuss the future of this critical industry and together with keynote guests explore how UVM industry leaders are investing in new technologies, redefining safety culture, addressing ESG (environmental, social, governance) initiatives, and bringing awareness to career opportunities in the burgeoning field of UVM. It's a fresh take on an industry that once operated quietly and is now part of a global discussion with mainstream visibility. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.
