Native Plant Salvage

The native plant devegetation process follows the native plant inventory.  This process includes expert tree pruning, sideboxing, and continuous maintenance for several weeks, followed by collaring and bottoming, and finally transportation and relocation to a designated temporary nursery.  These plants are then maintained until they are utilized in the landscape installation process.
Depending upon your site needs, Agave can procure additional plant material from their existing inventory and/or sell your excess plant material.

Native Plant Inventory

Agave, a pioneer in the native plant industry provides site analysis that includes plant viability studies and mapping of vegetation.  This process provides valuable budgetary information for developers.  It also provides information for the land planners and engineers for plant relocation or to assess areas not to be disturbed.  This documentation also satisfies the requirements of government agencies.  A survey aids to determine the quantity and species of the plants that will survive the salvage process.  Landscape architects can then incorporate the inventory into your landscape design.  Agave will customize this service to your needs using either manual or Global Positioning Satellite Systems.
