Private Land Wildfire Damage Assessment
Sonoma County, CA
Habitat Equivalency Analysis (HEA)
Restoration Planning Tool
Great Ecology was engaged by legal counsel to assess the ecological impact to a nearly 8,000 acre property that suffered extensive wildfire damage. Through onsite vegetation assessments, aerial surveys, and desktop modeling, our team quantified ecosystem service loss and habitat restoration costs attributable to the potentially responsible party.
This project included an arborist report covering tree mortality and observations of damage and disease in native oak trees. In addition, we developed a land management tool to inform the post-fire habitat restoration planning.
