Relocating plants

As well as carefully considering the site’s impact upon animals and birds, vegetation, plants and natural habitats should also be protected, or relocated wherever possible.

Relocating plants and vegetation from a site is important to protect and preserve the natural environment.

One site has provided an example of how they relocated plants and vegetation. They collected enough seeds to be able to plant the following:

  • 26 hectare wildflower grassland;
  • 7 hectare stony meadow;
  • 6 hectare native woodland;
  • 6 hectare aquatic vegetation;
  • 4 hectare brownfield habitat;
  • 2 hectare reedbed;
  • 1 hectare wet woodland.

Although this is an exceptionally large example, the same idea can be scaled down to suit the size of your project.
