NATIVE VEGETATION CENSUS
Leeper Aerial partners with Power of Plants founder and President, Robin Kobaly, who is an expert in southwest native plant species identification, and vegetation and soils mapping from aerial and satellite imagery. The example service deliverable below highlights the location of 11 Joshua Trees, with suggested development avoidance zones (yellow circles with a 25 ft radius) around the trees. In addition to the Joshua Tree census of the parcel, the site was also inspected for five other other native southwest plant species that do not occur on the property.
