Electricity Utilities

DC Ground and Tree care has extensive experience in providing vegetation management across the entire electrical utility sector. We help to keep the agreed legal distance between trees and power lines to maximise safety for the public.

Rail Utilities

DC Ground and Tree care deliver these services throughout England.

Strategic, Robust and Disciplined Management

Our Rail teams are highly trained and experienced in working adjacent to the Railway lines and infrastructure. Minor enabling works and vegetation clearance around structures and earthworks can be very complex and challenging, especially with limited access. As such, we have developed robust, disciplined methods of working and techniques that enable our teams to work safely and effectively in all scenarios, in this high risk working environment.

Proactive Maintenance

We fully recognise effective line side vegetation management requires proactive maintenance regimes tailored to suit each area and location on site. The key to success lies in our ability to programme the right activity at the right time of year to maximise efficiency.

Ecological Mitigation

Rail routes provide diverse ecological corridors along which wildlife thrives. DC Ground and Tree care is proactive in assessing each site for any ecological mitigation that needs to be put in place prior to undertaking any activities.

Telecoms Utilities

In our modern world, we are all so dependent on voice and data transmission that any interruption to service is a major issue. Statistics show that up to a third of all communication outages can be attributed to vegetation contact with lines, poles, transformers and other vital equipment.

Maintaining a Reliable Service

DC Ground and Tree care helps keep the network operational by controlling vegetation using our highly qualified staff working with stringent control systems that are designed to protect them and others – where safety comes first. All of our staff members are regularly trained to ensure that we constantly maintain stringent compliance in all key areas.

Water Utilities

DC Ground and Tree care provide comprehensive grounds maintenance services to clean water reservoirs, water treatment works, waste water sewage treatment works and pumping stations with planned and fully reactive preventative maintenance.

Climate change is, and will continue to have a dramatic effect on weather across the entire globe making vegetation management vital for continued utility supply and the protection of the environment as a whole.
