We offer the following services to Utility Companies across the following areas: Minnesota, Eastern North Dakota, Eastern South Dakota, Western Wisconsin and Northern Iowa

GIS Inventory and Mapping

We offer up-to-date data, which is critical to maximizing the benefits of your Geographic Information Systems (GIS). Working in unison with Star Energy, we track what is happening on your system. Our GIS technicians monitor where work is being performed and when the work cycle and area will likely need to be addressed again. With your input, we customize any data you would like to track and monitor.

Our GIS inventory and verification services allow a utility, to eliminate training costs, and reduce administrative expenses while improving tracking accuracy. With GIS, your utility can even gain time and shift resources to other key projects.

Tree Cabling

We offer both static and dynamic tree cabling services to reduce stress in trees that may be damaged from high winds, the weight of ice or snow, heavy foliage, or are prone to failure.

Our static tree cabling systems are made of steel. These systems are used primarily for trees that are at the highest risk of failure and need extra strength to reduce stress. Our dynamic tree cabling systems are more flexible. These systems allow for more natural tree movement while still providing enough support to reduce the risk of failure.

If you're not sure whether your tree needs a static or dynamic tree cabling system, one of our Certified Arborists can help determine what system best fits your tree's needs.

Land Clearing for New Line Construction

We have the equipment and Certified Arborists available to complete the big land clearing jobs in a timely fashion. To prepare for powerline construction, we have cleared hundreds of miles of vegetation. Our solutions for vegetation management on the right-of-way include landowner notification and systems reviews. Additionally, we provide regulatory compliance reporting and documentation, comprehensive management programs, and technology solutions.

Utility Line Clearance

We work with electric companies to complete utility line clearance jobs. Our approach includes using employees that live and work in the same areas, which creates a sense of ownership and pride in the product we deliver. It also keeps communication levels at their highest and allows utility customers to operate more cost-effectively.

Utility Safety

Safety is one of our company values, so we strive to be proactive in correcting potentially unsafe conditions and creating an injury-free workplace. Regardless of the location, job class, or work environment, our staff of ISA Certified Arborists shares this goal to ensure their safety and the public’s safety.
