Vegetation Management

Vegetation, if not managed correctly can pose a threat to local environments and ecology. Further, excessive amounts of vegetation can create unwanted risks for urban and rural infrastructure. Our team of vegetation managers spans the industrial, forestry and invasive sectors and is very well versed in assisting our clients in the assessment, identification and responsible treatments of unwanted vegetation.

Forestry Vegetation Management

We deliver vegetation management and stand tending services to the forest industry throughout Canada.

Our team utilizes integrated vegetation management techniques that not only control competing vegetation, but also ensure the protection of non-target and non-competing vegetation. We use a broad range of both herbicide and mechanical treatments to control vegetation. Broadcast, discretion, single-stem and multi-year systems are implemented by Spectrum crews to provide a release of crop trees while maintaining biodiversity in the forest landscape.

Our innovation in forest vegetation management has allowed the provision of an extremely effective service that is consistent over any sized project. Spectrum has a vast labour pool and an intimate knowledge of applicable legislation and best practices which are used to manage projects, at any scale, from initiation to completion.

Our crews are outfitted with new equipment and the latest in GPS technology to ensure treatment areas are completed as required. Advanced mapping and area tracking are keys to our crews’ efficiency and success.

Our management expertise ensures that the needs of our clients are met while also addressing the expectations of public stakeholders.
