JR Landworks is an integrated land and vegetation management contractor. Integrated Vegetation Management (IVM) is generally defined as the practice of promoting desirable, stable, low-growing plant communities—that will resist invasion by tall growing tree species—through the use of appropriate, environmentally-sound, and cost-effective control methods. These methods can include a combination of chemical, biological, cultural, mechanical, and/or manual treatments. The IVM approach strives to manage vegetation and the environment by balancing the benefits of: cost, control, environmental quality, public health, and regulatory compliance.
JR Landworks has performed ROW clearing work for: water & sewer authorities, natural gas providers, commercial developers, wetland remediation contractors, medium infrastructure companies, large farm operators, and high acreage estate and home owners and international construction companies. JR Landworks has performed over 5,000 hours of forestry mulching operations since entering into full-time status in May 2013.
We have performed custom-critical, urgent operations to commercial and high net worth home & estate owners and have built a strong book of repeat and referring clients through Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania. Our company values, technical and industry qualifications, and a philosophy summed up in our motto, “If it’s not good enough for you, it’s not good enough” has earned JR Landworks the reputation of a trusted and highly valued business partner.
