From CN:
“If not managed properly, trees, brush or other vegetation can severely compromise rail and public safety. Vegetation can impede the view motorists have of oncoming trains and increase the risk of crossing accidents. Moreover, unwanted vegetation can damage the integrity of the railbed, interfere with signals and switches, contribute to track side fires, compromise employee and citizens safety, reduce visibility for train crews at road crossings/train control signals and track side warning devices, to name a few of the potential risks.

Our annual vegetation control program is designed to mitigate these risks by managing brush, weeds and other undesirable vegetation. CN’s vegetation control program is critical to ensure safe operations and contributes to the overall safety of the communities in which we operate.”
