Strategic Road Network Tree Safety

We have multiple teams around Durham and Northumberland carrying out Tree safety and vegetation management works on the strategic road network

Works are prioritised by the client from their detailed network wide hazard surveys and soft estate management strategy and include:

Crown lifting, visibility clearance, dead wooding, crown reduction, plot thinning, epicormic growth removal, pollarding and tree dismantling.

Here is one of the team’s crown lifting encroaching roadside trees, in order to improve visibility and safety.
