About ECI/Western ECI

Since 1972, ECI has provided innovative vegetation and asset management consulting services. We offer a business perspective backed by proven, research-driven solutions. Trees are a leading cause of power interruptions and tree maintenance is among the highest operations and maintenance costs incurred at most utilities. Our electric and pipeline utility clients are committed to continual improvement and our services are designed to help at every level along the way to improve reliability, reduce costs or enhance customer satisfaction and regulatory compliance.

ECI and Western ECI are sister utility vegetation management and right-of-way consulting firms, with 40+ years of experience. Western ECI was founded in 1997 to focus on the needs of clients in the Western United States including California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Utah, Nevada, and Arizona.

ECI is an industry leader in utility vegetation management. We have a solid track record for improving reliability and operational efficiency for our clients, while helping them save money. Based on our success with vegetation management, we also offer effective solutions for the management of other utility assets such as wood pole, streetlight and joint use programs.

ECI recognizes that traditional maintenance strategies cannot provide companies with the optimum return on investment and greater reliability they demand. Our proven, progressive business solutions remain focused on the bottom-line, and are delivering tangible performance improvements at a lower cost, enhancing stakeholder value.
