We carry out successful restoration plantings of many kinds;

  • riparian management and protection plantings
  • weed replacement/suppression plantings
  • forest diversity and enhancement plantings
  • restoration and stabilisation plantings of bare land and coastal areas
  • minimal intervention and natural succession regeneration regimes (e.g. on ex-plantation forestry sites)

We can manage these plantings from the planning stage to the point where they plantings no longer need maintenance and have developed canopy cover.  In detail this includes;

  • budgeting and required resources
  • recommendations for irrigation and protection
  • species selection
  • plant sourcing
  • site selection and placement of trees
  • planting and protection (e.g. tree guards, weed mats)
  • release from grasses and weeds
  • ongoing maintenance

We can also organise Community Planting days for ‘Friends of’ groups or similar land-care groups taking responsibility for the health of their local ecosystems.  Assisting and empowering community groups by giving them the knowledge and ability to care for these places in the most effective and efficient way possible is a particular passion of ours – restoration plantings are often a significant part of this.
