Vegetation management is much more than routine mowing of grass and trimming of bushes and trees. The Roadside Vegetation Management course explains the need for and purpose of good vegetation management. The course also underscores why vegetation management is a critical part of a roadway maintenance program.
Participants learn about equipment and herbicides used for vegetation management, including an overview of mechanical vegetation control and the environmental controls and precautions needed when using herbicides as part of a noxious weed control program.
This training was developed as part of the Maintenance Training Series. To access all the courses in the series, enroll in the 134109 course.
