De-vegetation involves the removal of unwanted vegetation (Weeds, dangerous or obstructive vegetation etc) from either a structure, slope or rock face.  This may be done to assist inspection, remove hazards or as a preparation for further works such as the installation of soil nails, rock anchors and/or rock mesh.  After de-vegetation the cleared area may be treated with a herbicide to restrict/reduce regrowth.

Operatives are NPTC and NPoRS Qualified and experienced in working in Rail (PTS), Quarry and Civil Sites.
