Vegetation Services

CWS provides many different vegetation services including installation of containerized plants, ball & burlap trees, bare root seedlings, and bioengineering material, invasive plant monitoring and control, and vegetation monitoring on completed projects. Our crews are knowledgeable and experienced in planting methods and treatment/removal of invasive plant species. We lower plant installation costs by producing and harvesting our own plant material.
