Vegetation Assessment and Management Plans
Large, complex, or historic landscapes often benefit from a formalized maintenance plan. Customized site-specific plans are intended to support, enhance and guide existing maintenance programs while providing targeted planning, budgeting, and conservation of natural resources.
These plans can include:
Existing condition assessment
Maintenance goals and objectives
Tree Inventory and Assessment
Seasonal Maintenance Calendars
Invasive Plant Management
Action plans for strategic invasive plant management has become integral in most of the planning documents we produce. Ranging from woodlands colonized with Norway maples to invasive plants within a wetland boundary, we prepare site-specific plans for effective control, and can provide implementation as well.
Working with landscape architects, planners, and homeowners, we prepare planting designs that include sustainable plant choices while achieving the desired outcome for the client.
