Ecological restoration services are implemented in partnership with:
Private and public land managers
Landcare, Dunecare & other community groups
Parks & Forestry
Land & Road Development Consultants & Contractors
Envite Environment has implemented environmental grants exceeding $12 million and other ecological restoration contracts valued at over $15 million. In 2015 – 2016 financial year, 31 environmental grants and 170 fee-for-service projects were underway.
Professional 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.
In 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.
Envite Environment coordinates of all aspects of natural area restoration projects. This includes project development and planning, liaison with stakeholders, coordination of on-ground works, monitoring, evaluation and reporting and administration and financial management.
Ecological restoration plans are developed to guide project implementation. Plan development includes site assessment and surveys, mapping, restoration strategies and techniques. Costing for implementation of plans can also be provided.
Envite Environment is able to implement targeted, systematic or opportunistic survey flora, fauna and habitat surveys. We are also experienced in specialist services such as endangered plant translocation and monitoring.
Envite 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.
Monitoring 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.
Envite Environment can assist with environment grant funding applications. We apply for grants in partnership with public and private land managers, community groups, Indigenous organisations Landcare groups and others.
We have proven expertise in site assessment, project development, budgeting and application development in partnership with stakeholders wanting to implement ecological restoration projects.
Habitat restoration, with a focus on management of endangered ecological communities and implementing threatened species recovery actions is a focus of many of Envite Environment’s ecological restoration projects.
