In the years after disturbance, affected areas can become biodiverse ecosystems with improved ecological function, greater wildlife populations, less erosion, and improved water and soil quality.
For example, a multiple-mile stretch of pipeline in the Marcellus and Utica shale plays may pass through wetlands, over steep mountain slopes, across rivers, and through agricultural areas and state game lands. These areas should be reclaimed with vegetation best matching the intended use of the land, the biodiversity that existed before disturbance, and with practices that best address such issues as erosion control, habitat fragmentation, and other environmental concerns.
We can design a biodiverse native seed mix to mitigate the environmental impact and aid in ensuring regulatory compliance. We routinely work with environmental departments, consulting engineers, and contractors seeding a project.

Due to the diverse range of site types that most utility transmission lines and oil and gas pipelines traverse, we recommend reviewing the seed mixes found on our website.
Our sales representatives will also be able to assist in identifying the most appropriate seed mix for the project and site type.
