Pollinator corridors under power lines
Bees, other pollinators, can benefit from wildflowers under power lines
For safety reasons, we put restrictions on the proximity and height of trees along BC Hydro Rights-of-Way (ROW), the area under and near power lines. But there are opportunities to introduce other vegetation to these corridors, including wildflowers that act as pollinator fields.
Pollinators – especially bees – are an integral part of a healthy ecosystem and an invaluable asset to food production.
One of the ways to help support the work of these pollinators is to use the open spaces in power line corridors to create pollinator-friendly habitat. As part of a revegetation plan or site development, BC Hydro encourages the planting of pollinator gardens along our rights of way.
