Site assessment

We conduct a site assessment to evaluate what will be needed to address your project goals. We focus on identifying existing plant communities and landscape features, invasive species, and any other landscape problems or issues that need to be addressed.

Site Planning

We create a site plan to address necessary removals, site work, and plant installation to achieve project goals. This includes phasing and a timeline for work as well as project cost estimates.

Invasive Plant Removal

After identifying invasive plant species on your property, we recommend invasive removal methods and implement a removal plan to eradicate or control invasives of concern.

Brush Cutting and Clearing

We cut and clear brush in a variety of landscape settings: field/forest/wetland. We select the best tools to reduce disturbance as much as possible based on the landscape setting.

Plant Selection and Design

We can recommend native plant material appropriate given site conditions and restoration or landscape project goals. 

Native Plant Material

We can grown and source native plants, focusing on regionally collected plant species.
