Alnus (Alder) 

Alders are highly adaptable to wet or poorly drained soils, making them a valuable asset in wetland restoration projects and waterlogged areas. Its nitrogen-fixing ability enriches the soil and supports the growth of other plants. Alders play a crucial role in riparian restoration projects, where their rapid growth and ability to thrive in wet soils help stabilize streambanks and improve water quality. Planting Alders along watercourses can enhance biodiversity and restore degraded habitats..

Benefits of transplanting

  • Bushier Appearance: Trimming the roots and tops during transplanting results in the growth and development of new branches, making the plant bushier, fuller, and visually more appealing
  • Stronger Immune System: Forces growth of fibrous lateral roots, increasing the surface area for nutrient and water absorption, leading to healthier growth, improved resilience against environmental conditions, and enhanced defense against diseases
  • Improved performance: Creates thicker foliage that acts as a protective barrier against strong winds, sunlight, and noise pollution. Benefiting wildlife by providing a more secure shelter with increased food availability.
