American Transmission Company Begins Work Along Arboretum PropertyWEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2012
The American Transmission Company (ATC) will be erecting power lines along the eastbound beltline near the Arboretum starting this summer. To accommodate the new power lines, ATC will be conducting tree and brush removal north of the Grady Tract, starting this week. Arboretum staff have identified several high quality oak trees along the beltline to be preserved. In addition, arborists will clear invasive species and hazard trees along the Arboretum fence to improve safety while serving our ecological restoration goals for that area.
