About Us

Helping you support a healthy environment

Red Tail Restoration & Land Management, LLC was opened in 2010 to support a healthier ecosystem for natural lands in Delaware, southeast Pennsylvania, southwest New Jersey, and northeast Maryland. 

Our Specialties

We specialize in invasive plant removal to promote native diversity, We also help landowners to reduce deer impact, improve storm water management, manage ponds, install pollinator friendly landscapes, and  support healthier streams. 

Our Goals

Our approach is to take a comprehensive view of the land, people, and wildlife and work over time to produce long-lasting results. Success comes from understanding individual species, timing management techniques when most effective, seeking support from outside agencies, and often working with community members to achieve wide-ranging goals.
