Family Owned and Operated
Bader Rail (a Cedar Beetle Company) specializes in Railroad Right of Way Vegetation Management, with the largest fleet of specialty vehicles available in the Southern United States. We use integrated vegetation management techniques to clear the railroad right of way efficiently and thoroughly.
To keep vegetation growth in check, we use a combination of weed removal and weed prevention through the use of large track mowers and commercial herbicide applications. We control brush and undergrowth with mechanical brush cutting and mulching. We remove and trim back trees to maintain locomotive safety standards, keeping the signal and line of sight clear and secure, preventing injury to both your operators and rail inspectors. We train our team in all aspects of right of way clearing including excavation, grading of project site, fire risk control and even transient camp clean up.
We have highly trained crews that come with years of experience, full railroad and OSHA safety training, are approved through the E-Verify system, are eRailSafe Certified and carry railcards at all times. Our fully staffed office can handle any incoming service requests, daily work reporting, and invoicing. We are fully insured and able to work in all contiguous 49 states. We offer the fastest response time for FRA defects available. We will leverage our extensive fleet and generations of expertise to maximize your track-time.
