CARE

MONITORING

Assessing ecosystem or habitat development after installation. This includes wetlands, grasslands and forests, or any combination. Data collected is project dependent, and can include many or fewer components, depending upon the client’s needs. It includes focuses on vegetation, phytometers, native : non-native species ratios, etc.; fertility, salinity, carbon storage, pollutant, etc; soil microbial, structure, etc.; aquatics community, and others.

SITE MAINTENANCE

Different plant communities & habitats require different site maintenance, from hand pulling of non-native species,to mowing and ‘weed-whacking’to chemical control or introducing bio-control agents. Contact CES to learn how we can help you retain a healthy native ecosystem.

Noxious control with minimal impact

Removal of Noxious species with or without herbicides (depending upon which is appropriate) to prevent damage to the site is always carried out in ways to minimize negative impacts to the ecosystems. Unnecessary spraying and associated costs are avoided by close monitoring and truly understanding ecosystem damage thresholds, as well as plant community succession.

CONSTRUCTION COMPLETION CERTIFICATE (CCC) AND FINAL ACCEPTANCE CERTIFICATE (FAC)

Preparation for CCC and FAC meetings, attendance, and timely follow up site work to ensure that requests are completed to achieve CCC and FAC approval. CES staff is passionate about sustainable site care and will help to deepen all stakeholders understanding of innovative IPM techniques.
