Vegetation Management Made Easy with the TruPulse 360

As you've no doubt heard Colorado is experiencing a number of wild fires burning out of control. In particular the "Black Forest" fire near Colorado Springs has consumed over 22 square miles destroying over 500 homes killing two as of this writing. Ongoing drought conditions and high temperatures make our forests a tinder box for dry lightning strikes and other natural forms of ignition keeping state fire fighters on edge. Natural causes is one thing, but allowing encroaching vegetation to compromise clearance areas next to high voltage power lines is altogether another story! More...
