Watch to learn how research validates an Integrated Vegetation Management approach

Research is critical to understand how to properly manage vegetation on utility rights-of-way. Through the past 60 years of research, the State Game Lands 33 research project has proven that using Integrated Vegetation Management (IVM) principles and practices help maintain safe and reliable plant communities that are beneficial to the environment. That’s why Shawn Standish, Transmission Vegetation Program manager with FirstEnergy Corp., uses this approach to treat incompatible vegetation.

Watch to learn how Shawn and FirstEnergy use SGL 33 to validate their approach to treat incompatible vegetation that supports diverse, early successional plant communities.

With the proper program and management techniques, utilities play an important role in enhancing beneficial wildlife habitat. Learn more at
