Utility personnel often wear many hats or have limited resources to take care of everything on their plates. Experienced utility forestry personnel can assist with or provide overall management of a utility vegetation management (UVM) program. From customer outreach and education to setting goals and implementing solutions to achieve them, outsourcing project management can include all aspects of the UVM program. This expert consulting service provides industry expertise to help clients meet goals with additional manpower, management of other contractors, or by serving as a liaison among internal departments.
To determine the most appropriate solutions, Davey Resource Group, Inc. (DRG) meets with the utility to understand UVM goals and objectives. DRG then identifies the best program management options, complete with a cost-benefit analysis that aligns with client goals and expectations.

To identify the most ideal program management options and provide a cost-benefit analysis, DRG reviews historical data and meets with utility leaders to understand the goals of the UVM program.
