Wildland Rehabilitation

Wildland fire rehabilitation involves spraying and re-seeding to aid in the protection and preservation of healthy landscapes. The Intermountain Great Basin is increasingly at risk of fire, erosion and loss of sustainable resources, thus affecting local economic stability. This is due primarily to invasive weeds.  We feel that our services assist in accomplishing the objective of the 1999 Great Basin Restoration Initiative instituted by the Bureau of Land Management. The initiative's goals are to "restore plant community diversity and structure by improving resiliency to disturbance and resistance to invasive species over the long-term."

One aspect of our government services is aerial seeding for burned area rehabilitation. Rehabilitation essentially amounts to stabilizing the soils. A healthy cover crop of native grasses is one of the best ways to ensure minimal erosion. In steep and inaccessible terrain the aircraft is the most economical method of seed distribution.
  • Post burn spray of products such as Round-Up, Plateau, 2-4,D and Milestone to control cheatgrass and noxious weed infestations to allow germination and growth of native grasses. 
  • Aerial seeding of burns to encourage growth of native grass blends and assist in preventing infestation of cheatgrass and noxious weeds.
  • In certain geographic environments this will also aid in the reduction of soil erosion and potential watershed contamination.
  • Crop Jet has performed these services for the following agencies:
    • U.S. Forest Service
    • Bureau of Land Management
    • U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
    • Utah Division of Wildlife Resources
    • Natural Resources Conservation Service
