UVM Survey

Our survey is the largest and most comprehensive of utility vegetation management (UVM) 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.

CNUC surveys a large, diverse sample of utilities, addressing all facets of their programs. Our most recent 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.
