Planting natives

What we do?

Natural Biodiversity strives to encourage the growth of native plant species. At sites where native-plant propagation needs some help, we plant species that are appropriate for the setting.

WHY WE PLANT NATIVES

  • Establish a tree canopy that will eliminate light-loving invasive species
  • Enhance wildlife habitat
  • Create privacy screenings
  • Improve the aesthetics of a site
  • Develop riparian buffers, improving stream quality

THE APPROACH

A two-tiered approach may be used: Fast-growing trees such as Poplar are planted in conjunction with longer-lived oak and sycamore, to establish a quick canopy that remains for many years. Native shrubs and herbaceous species also are planted as understory to help ensure competitive success and improve wildlife habitat.
