Conservation is an ethic of allocation, protection and the use of resources. Natural Land Management’s focus is upon maintaining the health and protection of the natural world and using natural resources responsibly.
There is now scientific evidence that humanity is living unsustainably, continually relying on and using natural resources. As the human population has increased natural ecosystems have declined and changes in the balance of natural cycles has had a negative impact both on humans and other living systems.
Natural Land Management is involved in improving habitats, creating and maintaining new projects from pond and wetland creation to tree planting, to reed bed filter systems. We are involved in schemes to promote endangered species such as water voles and rare plants such as grass poly. Our current major contract, local amenity verge mowing, ensures that we are aware of the location of notable verges around West Sussex and aid in the protection of wild flowers.
Natural Land Management harvests wood for fencing from trees that are coppiced rather than destroyed. This ensures that our woodlands are managed correctly and wildlife and plantlife will continue to survive for many more generations to come.
