Vegetation Asset Management System (VAMS)

Plot the location of your trees and vegetation on-site using mobile devices. Carry out surveys on the trees including Ash Dieback, BS5837, TEF3077 (Tree Hazard) and TEF3076 (Leaf Fall Risk Assessment).


Network Rail has >6M trees on the network. Although these trees play a huge part and vital role in connecting fragmented wildlife habitats across our countryside, reducing disturbance to our neighbours, and capturing carbon they also need a great deal of management.

There are several standards which cover the management of vegetation. Historically these have never been digitised.


VAMS is a digital platform which enables arboriculture inspectors to collect information about trees, vegetation and disease.
