Ecology Photo of the Month

The Morgan Fire of 2013 burned nearly 3,000 acres primarily on the east and south sides of Mount Diablo. In the spring of 2014 Nomad Ecology conducted a post-fire study of fire-following annual plants. In several of their plots fire poppy (Papaver californicum) was observed - an exciting find! Fire poppies haven’t been seen on Mount Diablo since after the 1977 fire, nearly 40 years ago.

    Tree Surveys and Inventories

    Nomad Ecology conducts tree surveys and inventories to document and evaluate tree resources for large and small-scale projects. All tree surveys and inventories are conducted in compliance with local tree ordinances and according to industry standards.

    Nomad also prepares tree preservation plans that incorporate tree resource assessments, preservation recommendations, impact analyses, avoidance and mitigation measures, and methods for tree preservation during project implementation.

    In addition, Nomad Ecology conducts on-site, pre-construction, during-construction, and post-construction monitoring to ensure the health of trees identified for preservation.
