Reclamation seeding is essential. At Millborn, we have been working to develop a comprehensive set of tools to assist you with selecting the right seed for the job.
Coming soon – the newest tool in your reclamation toolbox – a designated seed guide specifically tailored to our reclamation customers, with comprehensive information on each species.
This Reclamation Guide will follow our familiar format but will include reclamation-specific details about each species. Specifically, this resource describes each species in our native cool and warm season grasses, grasslikes, forbs, wildflowers, and shrub species. The plant descriptions will include a map of the current distribution, phenotypic traits, common uses, forage characteristics, and any other relevant information for each species. Further, a comprehensive table of environmental needs for each species is included to supplement these descriptions.
We have also included USDA plant symbols in the guide to aid those in the public land management sector in efficiently selecting their seed. Similarly, we have made it easy to determine suitability for specific geographies by including USDA Hardiness Zones. The Reclamation Guide will also include information on perennial broadleaves, legumes, turf and field grasses widely used in reclamation seed mixes. Generally, these species are naturalized to the U.S. and are used to supplement a reclaimed area’s ecological needs and produce more vegetation for wildlife and livestock.
Team Millborn is constantly looking for better ways to serve you – our valued customer! Along with the expertise of our team members, the Reclamation Guide will assist land managers and consultants in customizing mixes that best suit their needs. We look forward to sharing the new Reclamation Guide with you, and as always, please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or feedback. We are here to ensure that seed selection for your reclamation projects is seamless.
