'Highly accurate, dependable and cost effective'

ITP Energised

Attention to Detail

Impressed with the attention to detail and wide areas of knowledge displayed by Scott when surveying my acreage. Really enjoyed his visits and learnt a lot about the desired habitats of the local wildlife resident in my area, from beetles to Water Voles.

Alan Lyne - private nature reserve owner/manager

Clear, Thorough and Well Thought-out Report

Clear, thorough and well thought-out report which was very easy to understand and use. The assessment of the site was also sent to me within 14 days which I consider a very quick turn around. Really pleased with the work, and will definitely use Vital Ecology in the future!
