Ponds, lakes, streams and rivers provide habitat for a range of plants and animals, and are important features of the landscape. Greenlink Forestry Ltd can advise you on ways of enhancing the wildlife and amenity value of your water assets. We also carry out pond creation and riverbank restoration, supply appropriate aquatic plants, and are involved in a wide range of water and wetland projects.
HEDGES & TREES
The planting and management of hedgerows, spinneys and veteran trees are an integral part of the traditional UK landscape. Our expertise for them covers such specific needs as hedges designed to attract butterflies, provide winter colour, or food for farm and garden birds. We carry out a professional planting and aftercare service. We also supply good-quality hedging plants, shrubs and trees (including specimen trees), and accessories.
The decline in traditional meadows, coupled with farming initiatives over the years, has adversely affected many native wildlife species. Consequently, the management of existing sites as well as the creation of new wildflower-rich grassland is a priority. We can advise you on the measures needed to maintain and enhance the wildlife value of grassland habitat. We also supply site-specific seed mixes.
Generally farm ecosystems have been placed under increasing pressure in recent decades due to incipient climate change and the tough economic pressures facing agriculture. The need therefore to protect habitats for birds, animals, and other invertebrates, where numbers are declining, has never been greater. With careful management, efficient and productive farming can well co-exist with a rich diversity of wildlife. We at Greenlink Forestry have the skills and expertise to achieve this.How can we help you with conservation?
