What We Do

Ecological Restoration

Seeking to achieve effective and efficient outcomes that enhance and restore the ecosystem with respect to its health, integrity and sustainability.

The logistical planning and reporting on all contracts/projects is undertaken by our Operations Manager. He is assisted by Field Supervisors who look after a number of teams, each made up of an experienced team leader, 2IC and team members. The introduction of this structure has allowed us to become more client focused in our operational work and reporting.

Our work is predominantly with a range of public sector/local authorities and focuses on providing long-term solutions to invasive pest plant species. We have developed a framework that allows us to balance the budgetary constraints of ecosystem recovery with amenity values within an outcome based scenario.

We have a lowest toxicity policy and carefully balance the use of herbicides with best practice outcomes. Our reporting methods allow for us to monitor herbicide use over time/area and the framework allows for a decrease in herbicides over time.

Our teams are all trained in GPS use and, as part of our reporting process, we include track logs and mapping of the areas that we work in. The division has technical expertise in mapping and GIS and this has proved to be an excellent added value to our reporting whilst assisting the field crews on the ground. The resulting compiled data has allowed us efficiency and effective control in returning to remote sites and completing work units in difficult terrain and conditions.


We provide personalised and professional ecological advisory services to a variety of government and non-government organisations, business, private initiatives and community groups.

Our solutions draw from decades of experience in developing best practice ecological restoration systems to ensure measurable success is gained through robust project design. A practical background, encompassing a broad range of specialist skills, is used to ensure the project meets your desired outcome, and is both effective and efficient.
