Tree & Scrub Clearance

Our tree and scrub clearance solution will help your rail network maintain peak performance, manage fire risks, and ensure safety across the rail operation for all its workers and customers. RWB Group works with overground national and regional rail networks and local light rail networks. Our service includes manual and mechanical cutting and clearing of scrub, trees, and tree limbs.

Planned Tree And Scrub Clearance

Our primary focus is to ensure critical parts of the track are maintained to ensure safe train operation and the safety of railway staff, pedestrians, and track maintenance personnel.

It is essential for all rail networks to maintain the visibility of vital pieces of trackside infrastructure such as signals, signs, and level crossings. To achieve this visibility, we remove branches that overhang the track and could potentially impact trains, carriages, loads, and power lines or cause problematic high leaf fall during autumn.

Track maintenance is a preventative approach with many benefits. On an operational level, it is easy to budget for and lowers the likelihood of costs accruing from emergency and unplanned response to fallen trees, branches, or scrub. Furthermore, tree and bush maintenance helps to prevent delays and avoid unnecessary downtime.

Our scrub and tree clearance services include:

  • Scrub, brush, and tree clearance
  • Branch cutting and removal
  • Move small branches to locations that create a habitat for wildlife to minimise the environmental impact of vegetation clearance
  • Chipping and mulching of large branches
