Reclamation and Restoration Resources

Reclamation, horticulture, and restoration occurs on a large scale and requires different resources than the personal, community or commercial use of native plants. Private and public lands that are disturbed by most industrial activity are required to be reclaimed to the adjacent reference community or to equivalent land use – often a native plant community. 

Below are links to the regulatory response to the use of native plants in reclamation; and the academic, industry and professional-sponsored research into the restoration and reclamation techniques at the ecological community scale.
