Chalk Grassland Restoration Surrey

DG Trees Arboriculture

DG Trees Arboriculture is at the forefront of ecological conservation efforts in Surrey, with a particular focus on the restoration of chalk grasslands, a crucial yet increasingly rare habitat. Our dedicated efforts aim to revive these valuable ecosystems, which are home to a diverse array of flora and fauna.

Our team has extensive experience across the UK, gaining valuable local insight while working throughout the county and adjacent areas.

Understanding Chalk Grasslands

Chalk grasslands are unique environments that flourish on shallow, nutrient-poor soil overlying chalk bedrock. Historically widespread across Surrey, these habitats have been diminishing due to various factors including agricultural expansion, urban development, and neglect. Restoring these areas is vital for biodiversity, supporting species that are specialised to this environment.

Our Approach to Restoration

Our restoration process involves several strategic steps:

  1. Assessment: Initial surveys to understand the current state of the land and identify specific challenges.
  2. Planning: Developing tailored restoration plans that consider local ecological needs and long-term sustainability.
  3. Implementation: Removing invasive species and reintroducing native plants that are characteristic of chalk grasslands, such as orchids and wild thyme.
  4. Management: Ongoing management to ensure the restored areas remain viable and continue to support biodiversity.

Why Restoration Matters

Restoring chalk grasslands in Surrey not only benefits the local wildlife but also enhances the landscape’s aesthetic and recreational value. These grasslands are hotspots of biodiversity, hosting a variety of insects, birds, and plant species that contribute to ecological health and stability.
