"Chemicals may be the most cost effective way to treat overgrowth on the right of way," said MaryBeth Farley, program manager - Vegetation, "but it's not the most environmentally friendly."
Goats frequently are used in California to help with clearing of dry vegetation. Farley came to Union Pacific from the University of California-Davis with a bachelor's degree in Environmental Horticulture and Urban Forestry. "I didn't know when I joined that I'd be involved in vegetation control on the right of way," she said. "I was used to growing crops, not keeping them in check, but I enjoy the challenge of working to establish safe landscapes for our employees and our communities," she said. "This is the biggest clearing project we've ever done," Farley said. The vegetation and dry conditions were getting too close to the Roseville Subdivision, and addressing the situation couldn't wait any longer. "There may be risk everywhere," Farley said, "but the goal is to prioritize and implement control measures where there's a need, before it's too late."
