The mission of the Mountain Lake Vegetation Management Council is to bring together individuals with an interest in integrated vegetation management to exchange ideas, opinions and information. We will provide our members with the tools to make prudent and knowledgeable vegetation management decisions with the principals of excellence, fairness and integrity as the foundation of our profession. The MLVMC will promote the safe and responsible use of IVM products to enhance quality of life and the environment.

For over half a century, MLVMC has provided a forum for members to freely express and discuss concerns, desires, and techniques for vegetation management in an informal atmosphere. A continually expanding and diverse membership of dedicated vegetation professionals in both public and private sectors keep the Council vibrant and current. Centered in the eastern United States, where climatic conditions make vegetation control along rights-of-way of paramount importance, the Council includes over 500 members within the professional community of vegetation managers. Mountain Lake Management Council membership includes representatives from chemical manufacturing companies, equipment producers and distributors, utility and forestry companies, transportation departments, consultants, contractors, university researchers, and government officials. This variety of membership makes the organization an invaluable source of contacts and a catalyst for new ideas in vegetation control and management.
