About Us

Red Tree Environmental Solutions Limited is a Canterbury based company leading in the development and commercial application of science based ecological restoration technologies, namely the Enviroblanket®.

PROCESS 

Through the science of biomimicry and coupled with prescriptive application methodologies, the Enviroblanket® provides a unique framework for native forest regeneration, land stabilisation, sediment control and carbon sequestration.

Over the past four years, the Enviroblanket® technology has developed from proof of concept on a small scale in the Christchurch earthquake land remediation, to proof of process in the post-quake KaikĊura transport corridor restoration. This innovative technology has proven itself effective in a wide variety of environmental zones including wetlands, riparian margins and coastal forests.

 
 
BACKGROUND

Having planted and maintained over three hundred and fifty thousand native plants over the past fourteen years, we are now building upon the success of known and tested native restoration methods, with ongoing field research and industry innovation.

In June 2017, Red Tree was engaged by Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) to establish native plantings in the post-quake Christchurch Port Hills Red Zone. Regenerating native ecology and biodiversity on such desolate substrates and steep gradients was a tough brief. This challenged us as to how we could increase the odds of plant survival.

Under these circumstances, Red Tree began conducting research and development into the direct-seeding of native species and compost-based revegetation technologies. The Enviroblanket® development was underway.
