- Ibberson, J.E.
Pennsylvania department of Forests and Waters
Through proper planning and treatment we now know that vegetation on rights-of-way can be developed to the advantage of all concerned.
The policy of the Department is directed toward reducing the maintenance costs and satisfying the desire of utility corporations for low and easily traversable vegetation on their rights-of-way through forested areas. At the same time, the policy is aimed at developing a plant cover which fulfills the requirements of soil conservation, good watershed management and, in addition, affords optimum advantages for many forms of wildlife which require a variety of foo and cover to survive. Along with these benefits, maximum aesthetic values for rights-of-way should be obtained.
