a restoring to an unimpaired or improved condition
No matter where you go, human populations have always found ways to alter the landscape in an attempt to improve their environment. Unfortunately, in our quest to make things more productive, our actions have sometimes destroyed or restricted the ecological function of the land. When this happens, entire processes can be crippled and things never work quite right again. However, despite continued abuse, many natural plant communities have an inherent resiliency that can recover rapidly with a little help.
Throughout the Mid-Atlantic region, there are hundreds of unique types of natural forests and grasslands. From the top of the highest summits down to the coastal marshes, the southeastern landscapes are blessed by biodiversity. Each area has a suite of species that is unique in various ways. Regardless of what currently exists on a piece of land, there is also a history of past disturbances which dictates what is present.
Please take a moment to browse a few of our favorite plant communities or species. If you are a landowner or manager and would like to discuss the options for an ecological restoration project, please contact us.
