The UAA recognizes that excellence in the UVM
industry can only be achieved when we treat our
rights-of-way as ecosystems and take the best
possible care of the natural resources we have
been entrusted to manage.
Utility rights of way are essential parts of the ecosystems that sustain humans and the life around us. An important component of productive ecosystems is a diverse and abundant community of pollinators. Much has been written about honeybees but we have ignored the thousands of species of native bee, moth and butterfly pollinators in our landscapes.
Learn about the important ecological roles of these species and the plants required to support their populations in our landscapes.
