Vegetation Management

Glendale provides professional vegetation management across the UK. Due to its high level of risk, this specialist arboricultural service requires expert knowledge as well as adherence to the most stringent of legislative requirements.

From powerlines to highways, our vetted and qualified personnel can cut trees and remove other woody vegetation, helping structures including overhead cables, utility stations, public transport and other infrastructure to run smoothly.

Vegetation management is a core service available from Glendale. Our experts can ensure your operations are in no way obstructed by trees or other woody vegetation.

Glendale’s team of highly qualified experts includes arboricultural tree surveyors, logisticians, utility linesmen and senior approved personnel. Together, these knowledgeable individuals are an authority on all aspects of vegetation management. With nearly 30 years’ experience, Glendale is perfectly poised to meet your requirements, particularly if your organisation is responsible for large-scale, linear infrastructure or large geographical areas where logistics may prove problematic.

Glendale vegetation management services

Vegetation can soon become unruly without proper care, observation and maintenance. Warm weather paired with well-timed rain can cause a spate of quick, extensive growth that can seemingly appear from nowhere. This can prove obstructive to the continued operation of large, linear infrastructure including highways and powerlines.

By enlisting Glendale’s vegetation management service, you will gain a bespoke management programme designed to effectively control plant growth throughout the year, year on year. We utilise various methods to control plant growth, ranging from tree surgery and removal to the responsible use of herbicides. As well as proactive planning, we also conduct reactive work including making trees safe during inclement weather.

For transport

Glendale’s expert teams are trained, qualified and equipped for highway vegetation management projects on footpaths, bridleways, high-speed roads and motorways. We can promote safety and convenience on all thoroughfares by removing any obstructive vegetation and effectively managing the surrounding locale.

Our staff hold all of the necessary qualifications to conduct work alongside high-speed carriageways including NRSWA Chapter 8 (Supervisor/Operative level) signing, lighting and guarding. In order to achieve a safe work site and an informed travelling public, the full requirements of Safety at Street Works and Road Works, a Code of Practice issued under the New Roads and Street Works Act 1991, Traffic Signs Manual Chapter 8 and Chapter 8 supervising, signing, lighting and guarding are followed.

For power and utilities

From substations to overhead power lines, all energy and utilities infrastructure requires specialist vegetation management. Our experts work to ensure tree and vegetation growth poses no threat to the safe maintenance of hardware, particularly concerning the health and safety of personnel. We frequently conduct work in areas with sensitive equipment and observe best practices to maintain a safe working environment. By keeping the power on, we can mitigate the impact of our vegetation management work on the wider utility network. Where it is impossible to keep the power online, we endeavour to carry out controlled shutdowns and complete any necessary work quickly, ensuring the power is back up as soon as possible.

Glendale offers comprehensive plant control services for the energy sector. We can also perform work in emergency situations, conduct safety audits and draw up planned maintenance plans to ensure ongoing legislative compliance.
