Vegetation management is a major expense for utilities. For many, it is the single greatest operational budgetary line item. At Eocene Environmental Group, we leverage comprehensive and reliable industry data to transform your program and improve your operations.

Eocene’s utility vegetation management (UVM) industry survey is a clearinghouse for the best information on UVM and provides a comprehensive report of utility vegetation management activities and operations – right at your fingertips. We can also partner alongside your company to create custom surveys that meet the specific needs you have.

UVM Research

Eocene conducts the largest and most comprehensive survey of utility vegetation management in North America. It is a utility company’s best source for comparing its UVM program to those of its peers and serves the industry as a whole by identifying trends, best practices, research and development needs. The survey was designed to quantify details about companies in the industry, along with details of their safety, program management, pruning, integrated vegetation management, electrical operations, storm response and communications. We want our clients to achieve compliant, effective, efficient and defensible UVM programs.

Survey Audience

Eocene surveys a large, diverse sample of utilities, addressing all facets of their programs. Our 2019 study captured the opinions and data of utilities that collectively serve more than 36 million customers and manage 33 million miles of utility lines. The results are published for participants and our clients. Safety is a top priority and something we value at Eocene, and that includes data security. This is why all survey participant identities and opinions are kept confidential.
