Habitat Management develops site specific soil and overburden amendment plans to treat a variety of issues including low fertility and organic matter, saline/sodic soils, acid overburdens.
We develop and implement specific material handling and mitigation plans to allow for plant growth in difficult and problematic materials. We also design and implement sampling plans to identify plant growth-limiting materials, including burned and hydrophobic soils, high coarse fragment contents, steep slopes, acid, seleniferous, sodic and saline materials.
