BELCO Advisory On Vegetation Management

April 6, 2015

BELCO said they wish to “advise the public that the landscape gardening company Brown & Company Ltd. are working in the vicinity of Southlands in Warwick, as part of BELCO’s ongoing, Island-wide vegetation management program.

“The work being carried out near Southlands is to plant native and endemic species, replacing vegetation that was removed some months ago. Trees and other plants were removed because they were interfering with overhead lines,” a spokesperson said.

“Brown & Company Ltd. are planting some low-growing plants that will never interfere with overhead lines, as well as some taller species that will be located at least 10 feet away from overhead lines. The native and endemic plants being used are: palmetto, olive wood, buttonwood, Jamaica dogwood, snow berry and Bermuda cedar.

“The work near Southlands started late last week and will continue at least through the current week. BELCO does not anticipate any impact to traffic or pedestrians, but we have received queries from passers-by about Brown & Company Ltd.’s signs. We thank the public for their cooperation as the vegetation management program continues.”
