Tree Management in the Tropics
JCA have been involved in many projects overseas and are able to provide management advice on a number of scenarios including the protection and management of Mangrove Forest areas, the management of National Park Forests and Reserves, the Surveying of Botanic Gardens and we can provide assistance with the development and layout of New Towns. Our experience has involved work in much of Europe and the Far East.
Young Mangrove trees can be seen in the foreground, mature Mangroves in the mid ground and beyond, on the hills is typical Tropical Rainforest.
The importance of Mangrove Forests in protecting inland communities was well illustrated when the tsunami hit western Penang in Malaysia. The areas where the Mangrove Forest was still intact absorbed and protected the wave and no people beyond the forest area were harmed. Needless to say, the areas where no such forest was in place, the story was very different.
National Park Forest Management
Often working as a part of a team, we can assist in the protection of forest areas and in policy making.
Where recreational use of the forest is likely, we can do a safety check of trees close to campsites, footpaths and where canopy walkways are to be erected.
We can survey Botanical Gardens and provide bespoke software to enable them to be managed efficiently.
New Towns and City Tree Management
JCA have much to offer the developing world and are happy to discuss projects of any kind with prospective partners and clients.
We have selected this Ficus (Fig) for use as a safe climbing platform tree within the canopy of the Lambusangu Forest Reserve in Indonesia.
