Ecological surveys

Ecological surveys

We offer a diverse suite of ecological surveys that are targeted towards landowners & land managers, seeking to better understand their landholding for the purpose of making informed decisions around land use change or habitat improvement works. All our surveys can be tailored to meet specific client requirements and the results presented as digestible reports.

Baseline habitat appraisals

Our baseline habitat appraisal comprises of a detailed botanical assessment of the site, including collection of a species list, habitat categorisation and an assessment of habitat condition. These surveys are a fundamental starting point in identifying ecological considerations for a site. 

Depending on client requirements, our appraisals can follow the approach of various industry recognised methodologies, including UK Habitats Classification, Phase 1 & 2 surveys and NVC approximations.
