Vegetation Monitoring

Better plan vegetation management activities around your assets, prevent wildfires and validate tree-cutting work done by third parties.

Track all vegetation risks on every meter of critical infrastructure, at scale

Adapt trimming cycles based on growth rates and fuel loads

Move from a sub-optimal calendar-based to a risk-based VM approach

Today, vegetation management
is broken

Vegetation management is more than just trimming trees and bushes. It is about keeping critical infrastructure secure from encroachments and wildfire risk to ensure safe, cost-efficient operations and uninterrupted service to customers.

Dangerous vegetation encroachment can damage electrical equipment, cause power outages and even trigger massive wildfires. Roots of vegetation may cause leakages to gas and water pipelines. For railways and road operators, it can mean safety risks for users and workers and delays in service.

Traditional and often outdated methods to monitor vegetation don’t allow inspection of thousands of kilometres of assets, especially in hard-to-access areas and under extreme weather conditions. They also can be time-consuming and require many resources, training or special permits.  

What is more, traditionally vegetation management is performed based on fixed trim cycles, which take place between 4 and 8 years. This is not an optimized and justified approach since it doesn’t rely on up-to-date and accurate data about trees hazards.

Today, asset managers are requested to re-think and optimize vegetation management spending while enhancing the relevant service reliability indicators.
