Vegetation Management

Ehrlich’s Vegetation Management Service (VMS) will eliminate weeds or unwanted plants around your facility, highway, or railway. Not only is unwanted vegetation unattractive, it can also pose serious health, fire and safety hazards.

  • Eliminate harborage areas for mice, rats and other pests.
  • Improve safety for employees and customers by removing hazards contributing to safer work environments.
  • Reduce labor and equipment needs required to hand trim fence line and building perimeters 
  • Improve accessibility by opening access to transformers, fuel storage areas, fire hydrants, emergency exits, etc.
  • Remove dangerous and invasive plants such as poison ivy, multi-flora rose, sumac and other irritant and allergy causing vegetation.
  • Reduce fire hazards
  • Improve facility aesthetics and appearance
  • Provide a cost savings alternative by reducing labor to outside facility and grounds maintenance.
What type of weeds and vegetation can Ehrlich control?
Vegetation is usually classified as either:
  • Desirable – turf, shrubs and ornamental trees
  • Undesirable – unwanted plant growth and weeds 

When vegetation is in an unsafe or unattractive location, it is considered an undesirable weed. Ehrlich’s VMS Technicians can control any type of undesirable vegetation. 

What type of services are available? 

Using various combinations of materials and application techniques, services can truly be customized to meet your needs. In general, however, there are three basic types of service:

  • Bare ground programs – total vegetation control 
  • Bare ground programs that require total vegetation control adjacent to desirable vegetation or water 
  • Selective broad leaf weed and brush control that controls undesirable vegetation while allowing grasses to remain and prevent erosion
