I was dismayed to see that NYSEG has been clearcutting/brush-hogging vegetation down to bare ground under the powerlines on Salmon Creek Rd. With the nesting season still well in process, I'm very concerned about the probable mortality of birds that has resulted in this area of (formerly) dense growth.
While I do not know whether this vegetation removal is happening elsewhere in the county, I would like to see if we can prevail on NYSEG to delay cutting at least until later in the summer.
