The lungs of our planet, tree planting is often a required mitigation or compensation measure on projects.
With the accelerating worldwide climate crisis in mind, a particular emphasis has been put on trees as a means to reinstate much-needed habit at for wildlife (AKA “rewilding”), sequester carbon, mitigate flooding, cool air temperature and promote people’s wellbeing and mental health. Tree planting not only is a very effective tool to improve the quality of the landscape and deliver a whole range of ecosystem services but is also legacy for our future generations.
At ER, we can assist with:
- selection, planting & design for amenity and landscape, including soil assessment to determine species suitability.
- recommendations for tree stock management in a variety of scenarios, ranging from newly planted trees in public open space to mature trees in woodland, identifying and engaging with stakeholders where required in order to set-out achievable objectives without driving conflict.
- design and delivery of a monitoring programme (i.e. when biodiversity gain is amongst the objectives) aimed to review the progress versus set-targets.
- liaising with planners, we can also assist with Woodland Creation Grants throughout the whole process, from design to application, planting and management by partnering with trustworthy contractors.
