Bringing decades of experience to the table, our time-served arborists and vegetation management operatives support the leading names in rail, undertaking both major and minor tree and vegetation projects throughout the UK.
LANTRA and NPTC qualified and operating under robust safe systems of work, where necessary they're also supported by our in-house IRATA-certified rope access teams, performing their work in otherwise hazardous or inaccessible environments.
There are more than 10 million trees within 60 metres of the UK’s rail network and, whilst many of these are actually on private land, they still have the potential to impact the safe running of the railway.
Every autumn, your average mature tree sheds an incredible 10-50,000 leaves, many of which will drop or be blown onto railway lines causing significant delays and disruption to rail users. Furthermore, in the event of severe weather, such trees can pose a risk to the infrastructure itself, damaging signalling or OLE equipment and, potentially, blocking the line itself.
Not only can our vegetation management teams clear safe passage and working areas, our arborists can also help minimise the impact of trees upon rail users and the infrastructure.
