Network Rail (Pt'ui ) are in the spotlight for mindless 'Vegetation clearance ' in Southern Region.

Be interested to hear of other examples in your area.

Network Rail tree felling faces review


Yes I know 'Leaves on the track' means cuttings and embankments need to be kept clear, not least for fire prevention.

(which seemed to be a regular occurrence in my distant yoof)

But these twats are taking a mechanised division solution to a light infantry issue.

There's a petition and such : Petition unterschreiben

As an American, son, your input to this thread is negligible. Feel free to sign the UK Parliamentary petition though.

And Husqvarna is the pro's choice.

When we had steam trains the embankments were always kept clear.

Also, felling trees doesn’t stop biodiversity, you just get a different biodiversity.

Also, professional tree surgeons do prefer stihl, much better than Husky!

Sounds like a lot of nonsense to be honest - track side areas need to be kept clear and Network Rail do a lot to allow the rest of their areas to grow normally - I noticed my local station has a huge "insect hotel" on the scrub land between the carpark and the platforms.

Stihl is for farmers, Husqvarna for real foresters.:razz:
