Bob Green

B.A. Blackwell & Associates Ltd. have planned and implemented ecological restoration activities for degraded ecosystems and environments across BC. Our team has applied knowledge of restoration ecology, succession and stand structure to various forest restoration projects, including:

  • Windstorm restoration in Stanley Park
  • Identification and management of ingrowth and encroachment in dry forest ecosystems of the BC interior
  • Management of mountain pine beetle infested stands through the Forests for Tomorrow Program

Our team has experience completing landscape level and site level assessment of critical habitat for species and ecosystems at risk. This includes:

  • Development of GIS based models to map potential habitat based on selected input attributes for critical habitats
  • Completion of field-based surveys of critical habitats
  • Identification, mapping and management of species at risk in BC
