Environmental Restoration

High plant mortality is an expensive and disappointing outcome after all the hard work of planning, preparing and planting. 

Environmental reforestation with TerraCottem Universal at Christies Beach, Noarlunga Downs, SA, Australia – a decommissioned coal plant is integrated in the existing coastal wetlands (2013).Environmental reforestation with TerraCottem Universal at Christies Beach, Noarlunga Downs, SA, Australia – a decommissioned coal plant is integrated in the existing coastal wetlands – all 187,000 local provenance plants were planted with TerraCottem Universal (2014, few months after planting).Environmental reforestation with TerraCottem Universal at Christies Beach, Noarlunga Downs, SA, Australia – a decommissioned coal plant is integrated in the existing coastal wetlands – 95+% survival rate (2015).

Give your plants a fighting chance...

Improving survival rates is paramount especially in more challenging conditions where soil nutrients are poor, moisture is in short supply and there may be high levels of contaminants and/or salinity. This is why TerraCottem Universal becomes and even more powerful tool. When faced with challenging conditions this soil conditioner produces results and resilience.

The incorporation of a TerraCottem soil conditioner into the soil, at root depth, amends these growth-limiting factors and produces the vigorous, resilient growth required.

Effects of topsoil treatments on afforestation in a dry Mediterranean climate
This following report summarises the results of a study conducted by University of Málaga, Spain in which the effects of five types of soil amendments on the afforestation success (e.g. plant growth and survival rate) of a Mediterranean semi-arid area were assessed. The amendments tested were straw mulch, mulch containing chipped branches of Aleppo pine, sheep manure compost, sewage sludge from a wastewater treatment plant and TerraCottem Universal. This research confirms the positive effect of the TerraCottem soil conditioning technology on plant growth.
