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 our right of ways, 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 habitats. As part of a revegetation plan or site development, we encourage the planting of pollinator gardens along our rights of ways.
