Revegetation with Native Plants
The clean-up may be complete, but the soils at clean-up sites are now devoid of vegetation. In the past, hydroseeding large areas was the accepted revegetation method. Today, incorporating regional expertise and scientific research, revegetation is done using native plant species, giving better erosion control, longer plant life spans, and greater drought tolerance. Jump-starting an open area with native vegetation keeps invasives out while attracting larger and more diverse populations of wildlife. In turn, the area becomes a richer, self sustaining habitat with each passing year. Native plants are the new standard for revegetation of former hazardous waste sites. Running time is 9 minutes.
