Video Summary

The company favors vegetation management methods that respect the natural environment and promote biodiversity close to its lines. The objective of Hydro-Québec’s work is not to eliminate all the vegetation at a given site but only the plant species that are incompatible with system or equipment reliability.

Vegetation-control work is planned by Hydro-Québec’s forestry engineers and carried out by qualified contractors hired by Hydro-Québec.
