​Vegetation can be a serious challenge for utility companies, with trees and branches pulling down power lines, causing service interruptions and even wildfires. In an effort to proactively address these situations, utility companies are using multi-band satellite and aerial imagery, combined with analytics and AI, to accurately assess the proximity of vegetation to utility assets.
