Keeping pipeline right-of-way paths clear of vegetation and obstructions.
Despite most pipelines being underground, their infrastructure is just as complex as that of electrical power lines—and therefore, just as important to protect. Pipelines contain natural gases that, if the pipeline is damaged, can leak, wasting valuable resources and harming the environment in the process. Team members at Row-Care are trained in preserving the pipeline right-of-way path, which runs just above and around the pipeline, to ensure any necessary maintenance can be immediately addressed.
Maintaining a pipeline right-of-way is also called line clearance. It involves the trimming, pruning, removal and clearing of debris or vegetation from above and around the pipeline right-of-way, keeping it easily accessible in the event of a leak or other issue. And, as the name suggests, because natural gas pipelines require the right-of-way, line clearance also involves the vacating of structures or other hazards causing any obstruction.
"Townsend Tree has established a good working relationship with Duke Energy. I always appreciate the open, honest and candid feedback I receive when we have phone calls or are able to meet in person. Their local leadership team is very proud of the work their crews do and have invited me into the field on many occasions so we could review the work together. They have also become the role model for contractors on how we operate in the new pandemic environment. On the scheduled Teams calls, most of the leadership team is on camera and engaged in the call.

"Townsend has worked for Southeastern Indiana REMC for the 21 years that I have been here. We started a new Right of Way project four years ago to regain our easement, and Townsend has done a great job of staying on schedule and getting their work complete every year. They take care of problems if they arise, and no questions are asked if they caused the issue it is fixed with little to no input from me. They run a very good business for the work they do for us. I would recommend them to anyone needing great quality work done."
