Services

Spraying invasive speciesProfessional bush regenerators are experienced in restoration of diverse ecosystems including rainforest, coastal vegetation communities, creek bank vegetation, schelorophyl forest, wetlands and grasslands.

Weeds are controlled systematically so that native plants can regenerate and take the place of weeds. EnviTE Environment works with appropriate licences in habitat of threatened species and Endangered Ecological Communities.

All bush regenerators are ChemCert qualified and experienced in chemical, biological and manual weed control techniques. We are equipted to undertake large scale projects using equipment appropriate to requirements including power spray units, generators and stem injection of woody weeds and splatter gun control of lantana and other weeds.


Planting seedlingsIn areas of with low resilience and natural regeneration potential and on landscaping and infrastructure project, EnviTE Environment can implement any scale of revegetation project.

We can undertake seed collection and propagate local native plants in our plant nurseries.

EnviTE Environment can ensure successful establishment of plants through knowledge of appropriate species selection, planting design, site preparation, planting, mulching, watering and site maintenance.

Site regeneration preparation with crew watering seedlingsEnvite Environment has a demonstrated capacity to implement large scale infrastructure landscaping and biodiversity offset projects associated with highway upgrades, developments and other projects.

Extensive experience has been gained on various sections of Pacific Highway upgrades.

Roadside habitat reviewEnvite Environment has capacity to undertake field and office based mapping, data collection and analysis using Arc GIS software. Roadside vegetation surveys and analysis undertaken for Byron Shire and Ballina Shire Councils provide examples of GIS being used for data collection, mapping and analysis.

Surveying a site in subtropical rainforrestMonitoring and evaluation is a standard component of many ecological restoration projects. Envite has been involved in development of software designed for the Monitoring and Evaluation of the Restoration of Vegetation (MERV).

MERV provides the ability to capture, store, query and report on relevant information on vegetation structure, floristics, habitat variables, fauna, water quality, restoration works and related costings within a specifically designed MS Access database environment.

MERV allows users to gather information in a structured and systematic way which facilitates quantitative assessment and evaluation of these outcomes.
