After completing a landscape assessment we were contracted to restore a wooded region on a residential property. Invasives species had taken over creating a vegetative wasteland of low ecological function and uninhabitable to native wildlife.
Collaborated with the client to build a forest that both functioned and meant their design standards
Removed invasives trees, shrubs, ground covers and perennials from the site
Source native trees and shrubs from native nursery’s including: Hemlocks, Rhododendron, Redbuds, Eastern Red Cedars, Oakleaf Hydrangeas, White Oaks, Red Twig Dogwoods and Azaleas.
Installed the trees and shrubs over a series of days
Treated poison ivy and retreated invasives
Managed the system after installation by structure pruning trees, preventing invasive recolonization and ensuring survival of installations
Created a front yard micro ecosystem of shrubs and ground cover as a supplement to the restored forest
