REBUILDING / RECLAIMING ECOSYSTEMS
Returning areas to native ecosystems after those areas have supplied humans resources required to maintain our high quality of life is complex for each site. Collaboration begins with sitting down with project planners, engineers, architects and landscape architects, chemists, and others to understand site conditions. From there, planning begins, which includes field assessments, office-oriented planning, soil and plant community rebuilding, and care. Research projects are commonly included as well. Call to discuss.
NATIVE PLANT INSTALLATION
All species are installed, from wetlands to uplands, in small plant sizes. CES oversees the installation of large trees and shrubs throughout the area where we will rebuilt the majority of the community.
SOIL RECONSTRUCTION PLANS AND MONITORING
Soils must be rebuilt to match natural soil conditions to ensure a high degree of habitat quality for plants, animals, invertebrates and microbes to establish. CES creates soil rebuilding plans based on soil descriptions (e.g., soil horizon, texture, compaction, chemistry, etc.) and soil salvage and rebuilding monitoring.
