Public Notice - Vegetation Maintenance Program - Hydro One

I am writing to inform you that Hydro One Networks Inc. is scheduled to complete right-of-way vegetation maintenance along the transmission corridor on or adjacent to your property in 2024. 

Hydro One regularly monitors the conditions of its transmission corridors and schedules routine vegetation maintenance to identify incompatible vegetation along our rights-of-way, including tree species or brush that can grow tall enough to compromise the safe operation of power. Keeping vegetation a safe distance from power lines is necessary to ensure minimum clearance requirements established by our regulator, provincial agencies, and our utility partners across North America, to prevent tree related outages and for public safety. Maintaining our assets and infrastructure is vital to providing Ontario with the electricity we all depend on.

Hydro One uses an integrated approach to vegetation management and our forestry technicians assess each right-of-way to determine what work is required in the area. The work in your community will include the removal of non-compatible brush as well as pruning branches away from power lines and removing any dead or hazardous trees that have the potential to interfere with the safe and reliable operation of the power line. In areas where there is a higher density of brush, mechanical equipment may be used. 

To ensure our required clearance until the next vegetation maintenance cycle a Health Canada Approved Herbicide may be selectively applied, where deemed necessary, to control the re-growth of vegetation. 

Please note that Hydro One asks that verification of notification is provided; please contact Daniel Kirton at 705-238-8280 or by email at If you are a tenant, we ask that you forward this letter to the property owner. 

Thank you for your co-operation as we complete this important work.
