From the text...'The number one problem facing wildlife species today is loss of habitat. Subdivisions, industrial development, agriculture, golf courses, shopping centers, etc., continue to take away valuable wildlife habitat that can't be replaced. Wildlife are continually being pushed out of areas and are having to move to whatever habitat is available. Often available areas are marginal and do not meet their life requirements or are already occupied. The result is fewer acres available to sustain wildlife populations. Rights-of-way (ROWs) can provide tremendous amounts of wildlife habitat. There are millions of miles of electric, gas and highway ROWs across the nation. These miles of ROWs translate into millions of acres of potential wildlife habitat. Kentucky has thousands of miles of ROWs. Private landowners own most of these ROWs. Utility companies usually purchase easements from the landowners and manage the ROWs to maintain safe transport of electricity, gas or other services. However, landowners still own the land and can use the property for anything except activities that would interfere with use of ROWs' primary purpose of energy transmission. One such activity would be planting tall-growing trees.'
