Forest Fire Restoration in Colorado Springs

Forest restoration is the key to a healthier planet. This means restoring degraded trees to help build an up a strong healthy ecosystem. You don’t always have to remove or replant damaged trees, they can sometimes be revived. There are also many types of trees that can regenerate naturally.

Evaluation of fire damaged trees and vegetation is essential

Restoration is the process of assisting the recovery of an ecosystem that has been degraded, damaged, or destroyed. Ecological restoration focuses on re-establishing the composition, structure, pattern, and ecological processes necessary to facilitate ecosystem sustainability, resilience, and health under current and future conditions. Forest fire restoration includes more than just removing burnt trees. It involves evaluating individual trees and vegetation to ensure the restoration of the natural ecosystem. Restoring, enhancing, and maintaining the health of forests benefits the environment. That’s where Gilbert’s Tree Service, Inc. comes in.

Is tree planting essential to restore forest fire restoration ecosystems?

Newly planted trees need care because their root systems are not fully developed yet. The most important thing is to keep the area around the root ball moist, and you can do this by keeping the tree watered and using deep root watering techniques. Applying mulch will help prevent evaporation, moderate the soil temperature, and prevent damage to the roots. If the soil is poor, some light fertilization may be beneficial, but as long as you are keeping the soil around your tree’s roots moist, it should be able to grow well enough to be self-sufficient within two to three years.
