What is Restoration
The language around restoration can be very broad and can also imply slightly different things, but ultimately, it is about using the most ecologically appropriate plants to return a place back to a point in time of what ‘used to be’. For some this starts out as revegetating or reforesting an area – putting in trees and shrubs to assist in erosion control for example; whilst for others it is the full package of trying to recreate lost ecosystems and also associated and important cultural practices. The challenge for all situations however, is doing restoration in a way that doesn’t clash with but supports broader social and economic values as well as the ecological and cultural.
Our team has a lot of experience in the River restoration space, with a particular interest and passion for wetlands and swamp forest regeneration. Our intention is to work with our clients to identify the most appropriate species for their projects by pulling on our own extensive experience in addition to drawing on the skillsets of our very wide-reaching networks of experts in restoration science and planning.
