We Oppose the Duke Energy Progress Vegetation Management Program and Use of Chemicals in Rural NC

There are more environmentally sound and tourism friendly ways to manage vegetation under the power lines.  Prior to the acquistion by Duke Energy, Progress Energy never used herbicides in our county.  Why the change now?  Even though it's legal, please reconsider changing back to trimming and mowing.
