Restoration of heathland case study


Courtesy of Ecological Restoration Consultants Limited

Dr Phil Putwain has undertaken research over a period of 30 years on the restoration of lowland and upland heathland landscapes following severe disturbance by development projects on uncolonised mineral substrates on marginal farmland.

The research findings were applied to practical implementation of heathland restoration on a large scale at sites throughout Britain ranging from the Orkney Isles to Cornwall

Restoration sites included;

  • oil industry and telecoms development projects
  • oil, gas and water pipelines
  • sand and gravel and china clay mineral extraction sites
  • deep mined and open cast colliery spoils
  • eroded deep peat at high altitude
  • marginal and abandoned farmland
