Plant Rescue and Relocation

Development activities sometimes disturb or destroy valuable, diverse ecosystems. Cardno can assess an area and help clients preserve plants that otherwise might be destroyed.

For example, Cardno staff successfully transplanted approximately 100,000 Dwarf lake iris (Iris lacustris) and 30,000 Houghton's goldenrod (Solidago houghtonii) to protect them from impacts related to a pipeline expansion. Our staff can relocate plant species within an existing site or move them to an entirely new planting site in other areas of a community, such as a park.
