Eco-Restoration Services from EcoAddendum

– Inventory and Site Overview

This is the critical first step in any restoration project.  It’s important to know details about the natural character of your site before making decisions that impact your landscape and the ecosystem it supports.

– Strategic Site Management Plan

We provide a written plan outlining step by step activities for the best recovery of native plants, trees and your site’s environment.  We’ll consider short and long term views. We will help you set priorities, timetables and create a blueprint for continued work by future managers.

– Recommended Plants

We provide a comprehensive list of native species, where to find them, and best planting locations for your site. We’ll tailor our list to your needs and preferences such as color and aesthetic groupings, size and height of mature plants, and edible or wildlife food priorities.

– Delivering Plants

We can arrange delivery of many native plants species through one of our local partner native plant nurseries.

– Advising on best ways to remove invasive plants and trees

There are many ways to remove invasive plants from a property.  Few people know that sometimes more damage can be caused with certain removal methods. As part of our Inventory and Site Overview, we can assess your invasive plant situation and explain best removal strategies. We also partner with experts who specialize in all types of invasive plant removal.

– Leading volunteer groups in planting native plants

We will train and help your volunteers plant native plants in the best locations on your site.

– Leading volunteer groups in removing invasive plants

We will teach your volunteers to recognize the difference between native and non-native species and train them in safe invasive plant removal techniques.

– Leading Educational Walks that highlight your Eco-Restoration work

We lead engaging and informative walks that explain the value of your restoration site and teach about the values of native plants, and how your site is an important part of the overall ecosystem within your local watershed and broader regional ecology.
