 Wildland Consultants Ltd have planned and implemented many indigenous revegetation projects, in a range of environments. Since 1998 the company has planned and undertaken c.90 separate planting projects, some of which involve multiple sites and a range of habitat types. These projects have involved the successful establishment of hundreds of thousands of indigenous plants and at least 100 species, including trees, shrubs, grasses, sedges, and rushes suited to forest, shrubland, and wetland habitats. All of our projects involve ongoing monitoring and we continue to monitor plantings until they are well established and maintenance requirements cease or become minimal. Our company implements every stage of these projects, including preparation of restoration/revegetation plans, site preparation, pest control, weed control, site preparation, planting, monitoring, and ongoing maintenance. Company clients include private landowners, regional councils, district councils, iwi, and corporates. The projects have been undertaken to achieve protection and enhancement of indigenous biodiversity, and protection of riparian margins. We also manage indigenous revegetation through natural successional processes. One of these is a 200 ha site recently cleared as a result of the harvesting of Pinus radiata.
