Vegetation management

No ecosystem too big or too small.

Our team manages various ecosystems native to the Midwest from establishment to long-term growth. We have extensive experience with invasive & noxious weed control, rain garden maintenance, enhancement plantings, buckthorn removal, increasing biodiversity and integrated pest management (IPM).

Healing the Earth with fire.

Established in 1996, the Red Rock Fire team utilizes their experience and expertise to provide prescribed burn and wildfire suppression services with precision and safety. Healthy ecosystems need periodic and controlled fires.

Conservation Grazing Program
