Ecosystem restoration may include use of techniques such as management of natural forest succession, agroforestry, tree planting through reforestation or rewilding. While native species are prioritised, the use of alien species, which provide ‘nursing’ or similar qualities, are allowed practices in the re-establishment of natural forest cover or ecosystem function.
Depending on the site, restoration may focus beyond forest or trees to include elements of the target natural forest ecosystem, e.g.: wetlands, riparian zones, etc.
The Standard for Field Verification of Ecosystem Restoration was designed to audit performance at any scale (small to large) and any time point in an ongoing restoration process or project.
