is a ROW?
More than 15 million acres of land in the U. S. are presently
in use as right-of-ways for electric powerlines, telephone lines,
highways, railroads, pipelines, navigation channels, airport runway
approaches, drainage and flood control canals, spillways, levees,
and communications structures. All of these require periodic vegetation
management in order to assure their continued efficient and safe
use. One way in which this management can be provided is with the
use of herbicides.
The objectives of a well planned right-of-way vegetation management
program are to safely, efficiently and effectively maintain right-of-ways,
utility substations, compressor sites, regulation or meter stations,
maintenance/storage yards, drainageways, fencerows and other right-of-way
facilities so that vegetation does not interfere with their intended
This program seeks to advance the knowledge and professionalism
of ROW managers.
