In the Weeds about Vegetation Management

28 October 2019

We are REC – a podcast series produced in partnership with Rappahannock Electric Cooperative.

We were in the studio for a conversation with Cindy Musick, Director of Vegetation Management for REC about their vegetation management program. We talked about how & why they schedule their maintenance; how it works & who the people are in the trucks and on the front lines for clearing right-of-ways. We discussed how many of those on her team are certified arborists and foresters; some strange things she’s seen in her travels to member properties; and even learned about how members can acquire wood chips from their local maintenance crew.

Cindy also told us about the wildlife aspect of her job that includes saving some trees for use as animal dens and nesting for raptors & eagles. They recently planted a pollinator garden at the Blue Ridge office in Front Royal and have since planted several more at other offices as well.
