Site Restoration, Native Plant Installation and Seeding
Vitae has successfully installed hundreds of thousands of custom grown and commercially available plants throughout Alberta's wide range of native landscapes. Whether it be harvest and install of live cuttings, supply and install of potted materials, native seed or turf seeding, or the relocation of vegetation found on site, our team combines state-of-the-art tools and equipment, quality products and highly trained professionals to deliver successful revegetation on reclamation projects for our industrial partners.
Erosion and Sediment Control (ESC) and Hydroseeding
Efficient application of ESC products is key to slope stabilization and the minimization of soil loss on-site. This helps with overall success of vegetative establishment and achieving project goals. Our trained professionals can recommend and install a wide range of products to meet the requirements of your site, including hydraulically applied mulch and biotic soil amendments to help depleted soils support plant growth over time. Whether it be temporary or permanent, coco matting, wattles, or biolog installations, our team can help your soil stay where it is supposed to and keep sediment on-site.
Decompaction and Site Recontouring
Our skilled team of reclamation technicians uses quality equipment to bring a sites soil profiles and landscape contouring back to pre-disturbance conditions, allow for proper drainage, and support vegetative establishment. We have a proven track record of success working directly for industry clients or subcontracting to larger general contractors. Our experience includes working with clients in oil and gas, abandoned leases, transmission lines, road construction, civil construction, private development, and much more.
Bioengineering, Creek Rehabilitation and Streambank Stabilization
Streambank stabilization and bioengineering projects can be tricky business and often require significant execution planning to be completed properly. Our team has completed many installations with a large variety of designs. Our experienced project managers work together with project engineers, designers, and consultants to ensure projects are executed to spec while taking into account specific site challenges and conditions. We work hand in hand with our partners and consultants to follow all applicable environmental regulations to a tee.
Access Decommissioning and Road Removal
Site infrastructure is a key piece to stakeholder management. Our team will work with your consultants, engineering firm, general contractors, subcontractors, or site owners to help maintain or decommission accesses. We utilize best-management practices to keep your team moving forward, minimize erosion potential, and reclaim accesses when they are no longer required. We can help achieve your team achieve project goals while minimizing impact and help keep your stakeholders satisfied.

Tree Removal, Brushing, Mulching and Clearing
Forest management is crucial to ensuring that the risk of stand replacing fire is minimized as much as possible. We have staff experienced in tree felling, thinning, brushing, clearing, and debris management. Working with private, commercial, or industrial clients towards healthier forests and fewer danger trees is part of our passion for a sustainable environment. Through the deployment of experienced staff, safe work practices and procedures, and appropriate protective equipment, Vitae has contributed towards safer and cleaner forests and work sites throughout Alberta.
Earthworks and Civil Construction Services
Landscape topography is a key factor that affects the drainage of a site. This impacts the overall usability of the land and dictates the type of plants that will survive there. Ensuring that a desired grade is achieved is crucial prior to the construction of assets, application of topsoil, or planting of vegetation on a site. Our modern fleet of well maintained equipment, relationships with partner organizations, and in-house professionals work with local and regional suppliers of topsoil and aggregates to put the right materials in the right places. Our operators know our gear well and can get your project done on time and on budget.
Irrigation Design, Installation and Site Maintenance
Everyone knows plants need water to survive. How much water is applied and when watering occurs is also very important to the success of plantings, both in natural or man-made environments. Our certified irrigation experts can help identify the requirements of planted areas, design systems for irrigation, or install systems that have been specified by our clients and partners. Well maintained plant material is healthier, looks better, and is much more likely to survive and thrive over time, especially when exposed to hot summers and even colder winters.
