Tree Pro Ltd: Efficient De-Vegetation Clearance for Network Rail

Tree Pro Ltd is a leading arboricultural company that specializes in tree surgery, land clearance, and vegetation management. Our dedicated team of professionals provides efficient and effective services that meet the needs of our residential and commercial clients. We are proud to have recently completed a de-vegetation clearance project for Network Rail.

The Project

Network Rail, the owner and operator of most of the rail infrastructure in Great Britain, approached us to clear a railway bank that was covered in vegetation. The client wanted the bank to be cut down to soil level so that they could install a mesh over it to prevent landslides. This was a crucial project that needed to be undertaken to ensure safety along the railway network in the future.

The Challenges

This project came with its fair share of challenges. For starters, the railway bank posed a significant hazard to our team, as it was steep and unstable. Secondly, we had to ensure that the work we carried out did not interfere with the train schedules. Our team worked in partnership with Network Rail to carry out this project safely and efficiently.

The Solution

At Tree Pro Ltd, we pride ourselves on our expertise in arboriculture. We knew that this project required a methodical approach in order to clear the bank safely and effectively. Our team first completed a full risk assessment and method statement to ensure that we had covered all potential hazards. We then mobilized a team of experienced and fully qualified operatives with the necessary equipment and safety gear.

The Result

Our team worked diligently over a period of three days to cut down the vegetation on the railway bank. We used specialised equipment, including chainsaws, woodchippers, and brushcutters, to effectively clear the bank. The result was a cleared bank down to soil level, in line with the client’s brief. The client was happy with our work, which allowed them to install the necessary mesh over the cleared area.
