Rail Vegetation Management

Our experience and competent rail de-vegetation teams operating from satellite depots are fully equipped to undertake all safety critical tree works in the railway environment.

We are members of joint ventures for rail specific de-vegetation projects offering a turnkey solution for our clients. Our working partnerships with NR Principal Contractors allows us to plan and deliver safety critical de-vegetation works which meet all Network Rail requirements.  We are able to deploy and access the rail network utilising Road Rail Vehicles (RRV's) via our service partners.

Our management team has extensive experience supporting multi-disciplinary engineering projects and offering bespoke solutions to large civil engineering principal contractors and joint ventures in the rail environment.

We understand deadlines are critical to our clients and ensure maximum productivity of our works with our new fleet vehicles and embankment chippers.

Our site production and mechanisation innovations help reduce fatigue, risk to operatives and productivity for our clients.

We offer full rope access/IRATA services to our clients to ensure the safe removal/chemical treatment of vegetation and invasive species.

Our ecologists can offer pre commencement and continued habitat surveys/GIS mapping for any rail site in the UK.
