Description
Whether from a storm or a bulldozer, large scale disturbance restarts ecological succession. Aligning natural regenerative processes with a planting and management plan offers a highly efficient way of restoring vegetation—or even improving it. Landscape architect and restoration ecologist William Young will illustrate this approach through projects from his many years on the cutting edge of ecology-based design
