DOT-Highway Vegetation Management

IVM Consulting, Monitoring, Inventory and Mapping

When roadside vegetation isn’t properly managed on the highways, it can pose a serious risk. At ACRT, we take the load off of Departments of Transportation (DOTs) dealing with complex Integrated Vegetation Management (IVM) on the highways with our comprehensive and consultative approach.

Our team can work with you to perform tree inventory and mapping, identify hazard trees and areas in need of overhead clearance, tree inspections for highway islands, and customer notifications. Additionally, we can provide comprehensive review and gap analysis, tree crew maintenance and safety training.

Hazards on the roadway can be created by a number of vegetation issues specific to your region, and our well-trained team takes into account considerations about the long term return of inventory and what a sustainable IVM is for your climate conditions.

We know that it’s difficult for DOTs to handle the management of this work, which is why our team can coordinate and monitor crews and even provide an approach to handling tree abatement to repopulate areas with reduced inventory.

The importance of an effective vegetation management program relies on objective, comprehensive insights into what’s best for your organization. At ACRT, we’re the only independent national vegetation management consulting firm — giving us the freedom to put our clients first.

Arborcision is a major evolutionary leap in the arena of Utility Vegetation Management. There is nothing out there that even comes close to it. It should be a critical component of every Right-of-Way management program. The data is invaluable in decision-making, cost analysis, and in the establishment of targets.
