Rail

 

The Homegrown Timber Group’s Rail division have been undertaking vegetation management services on the railway infrastructure, including large site clearance, Dangerous tree removal and Japanese Knotweed management for over 17 years. Our specialist management teams have developed close working relationships with Network Rail delivery units and project teams helping to assess, identify and implement management strategies to mitigate the risk to the infrastructure and train operation, and reduce maintenance costs.

The Homegrown Timber Group’s Rail division also offers our services to other organisations working in this challenging and ever changing environment.

Biomass Wood Fuel

With climate change at the top of the agenda for both local and international governing bodies, organisations are coming under increasing pressure to effectively monitor and reduce the impact they have on the environment. Many say that we are on a precipice of causing irreversible damage to our planet, and we agree!

The Homegrown Timber Group are cognizant of the impact our operations can have on the environment. As one of the largest vegetation management contractors in the country we want to minimise the effect we have on our surroundings. For us, it’s not about creating a perception of environmental awareness and an eco-friendly business ethos; it’s about actively looking at how our operations effect the environment and developing a strategy that has a measurable impact.

We maximise the use of timber and arisings that we remove during vegetation management operations, providing woodchip to power stations for use as a renewable energy source. We have supplied Slough Power Station with over 100,000 tonnes of woodchip generated from our other operations. Our biomass woodchip service can help you to effectively deliver your environmental strategy, reduce your carbon footprint and enhance your CSR profile.
