    REC Receives Tree Line USA Designation for 18th Year
     
    Rappahannock Electric Cooperative’s (REC) vegetation management team has been targeting tree-related outages, clearing more than 2,200 miles of right-of-way in 2019. While working to reduce the potential for tree-related outages so that member-owners have reliable electric service, REC contractors use specialized equipment to work safely and to protect the health of the trees they trim.
     
    This hard work and dedication from REC’s vegetation management team has not gone unnoticed. For the eighteenth year in a row, REC received the Tree Line USA designation from the Arbor Day Foundation. This designation recognizes utilities that demonstrate best practices in protecting and enhancing forestry.
     
    “Our dedicated team of certified arborists and foresters understand the difference they can make to keep electricity flowing to member-owners,” said Cindy Musick, director of vegetation management. “Just as important, though, they also understand our role in protecting the environment and leaving as many healthy trees as possible.”
     
    REC provides electric service to over 170,000 connections in parts of 22 Virginia counties. With its general office in Fredericksburg, Va., the Cooperative operates and maintains more than 17,000 miles of power lines through its service area, which ranges from the Blue Ridge Mountains to the tidal waters of the Chesapeake Bay.
