Environmental Services



At White Star we believe in the importance and benefits of environmental and riparian spaces in the urban landscape. We have learned the importance a good install and appropriate maintenance over our many years working on these types of projects and are able to assess, adapt and implement carefully considered approaches to any size project.

We are consistently looking for new techniques, technology and approaches to provide the most cutting edge and progressive service possible.

Below is a breakdown of our services and experience.

Invasive Species, Hand Removal and Brush Cutting

When it comes to the cutting and or removal invasive species sometimes the cut and pull approach is the only way. Our dedicated team has extensive experience in the hand removal of invasive and non-desired plant species.

Whether it be by utilizing our top of the line brush cutting equipment, Extractigators or good old fashion elbow grease, we will always get the job done.


Knotweed Treatments

At Whitestar we have certified pesticide applicators on our enviro crews that know how to treat and dispose of knotweed. We offer foliar spraying for larger treatable areas and stem injection for targeted treatment closer to watercourses and smaller infestations.

Knotweed is very invasive and should be managed and treated properly to minimize chances of spread and re-occurrence.

Silt Fencing, Erosion Control and Hydroseeding

Erosion and sediment control is the crucial practice of managing and mitigating the detrimental effects of soil erosion and sediment run-off, particularly in construction, landscaping, and land development projects. We also provide Hydroseeding services in which we spray a nutrient rich blend of seed, mulch and fertilizer onto your soil to ensure rapid and lush vegetation growth.
