Rare Plant Salvage and Preservation
Our crews have extensive experience salvaging and transplanting special-status plant species, including bulbs (e.g., brodiaea, mariposa lily, wild onion), herbs (e.g., clarkia, tarplant), shrubs (e.g., summer holly, cacti), and trees (e.g., Joshua tree). Many transplantation projects have involved maintenance to assure successful establishment.
Holding on to What Matters
We work with you and the project biologist to test installation and maintenance methodologies for their effectiveness in supporting rare plant survival and reproduction during seeding trials and plant translocation. Mitigation programs such as these often require an adaptive management approach during the long-term monitoring period to ensure that any issues are effectively addressed.
