Ecological Restoration

Ecological restoration is essential to the protection of existing natural areas.

Restoration is a complex process that requires planning, implementation, and management. Wetlands that have been filled and drained retain many of their natural characteristics, allowing them to be restored. It involves renewing natural and historical wetlands that have been degraded and reclaiming their value as vital ecosystems. Like wetlands, uplands have gone through years of overgrowth and abuse turning into thick, invaded, and less productive forests and fields in the process losing much of their ecological benefit.

In order to restore native prairies, wetlands, and woodlands the control of exotic and invasive species is necessary. Employees of McGinty Bros., Inc. are skilled at invasive plant control, treatment, and removal. Our staff includes licensed herbicide applicators, most with bachelor degrees and many holding advanced degrees in natural resource fields. We have a variety of equipment necessary to work on projects, large or small. We can help you create a management plan for your property.
