Plum Hill Ecological Services has expertise on a wide range of ecological restoration and native landscaping services for projects both large and small-scale throughout our region, from wetland mitigation, vegetation monitoring, conceptual planning, wetland delineations, invasive species management, GIS mapping, to wetland, prairie, meadow, and woodland restoration.

We are certified and have participated in trainings through The Midwest Biodiversity Institute in conducting Ohio's Vegetation Index of Biotic Integrity (VIBI), Rapid Assessment Method for Wetlands (ORAM), and Primary Headwater Habitat (PHWH) protocols. Additionally, we are certified and have participated in trainings for executing wetland delineations with the Eastern Mountains and Piedmont / Midwest Regional Supplement.

To benefit our projects, we use source-identified local genotype native seeds and plants grown at our farms and on the land of our partners. Below are a few of our current clients:

  • RED STONE FARM WETLAND MITIGATION BANK – working as project director, Plum Hill Ecological Services is responsible for design, monitoring vegetation and hydrology, project monitoring and reporting to regulatory agencies, GIS mapping, wetland and buffer native plant installations, as well as invasive species management.
  • BEHRINGHER-CRAWFORD MUSEUM Plum Hill Ecological Services is working with the museum to develop a native prairie/meadow landscape.
