BIOaudit™

BIOaudit™ provides system-based ecological metrics for comprehensive, data-driven planning in managing right-of-way (ROW) vegetation. Our ROW Science Advisors assess multiple aspects of biodiversity in your corridors and green spaces — vertebrates, invertebrates, vegetation, soil, water, and more — to help quantify your integrated vegetation management (IVM) efforts, improve overall planning, and communicate impact with the public.

WHY BIOaudit™ MATTERS

More than ever, utilities and associated organizations are being called upon by stakeholders and the public alike to explain their efforts in promoting pollinator and vegetation health throughout their territories. Historically, this has been difficult to quantify, making it even harder for utilities to justify their IVM efforts and communicate their importance. That’s why ACRT Services launched the BIOaudit™ assessment — to evaluate ROW corridor health and biodiversity over time and provide quantifiable data that vegetation management leaders can act upon and communicate with the world.
