Diver-Assisted Suction Harvesting, or DASH, provides an efficient and effective method of aquatic invasive plant removal.

Hand Harvesting

Our internally developed strategies for hand-pulling are highly effective at minimizing re-growth of EWM.

Lakefront Restoration

Are aquatic plants, sticks, and leaves preventing you and your guests from enjoying your lakefront and shoreline? We can help.

Mechanical Harvesting

Mechanical Harvesters cut and remove all nuisance vegetation in their path. This is best for maintaining navigation lanes in surface matting...

Herbicide Application

When the AIS problem is too large or too dense for manual removal, herbicides can be a very effective option.
