Vegetation Management

From treeline and vegetative buffer management, to fence and stormwater feature repairs, our in-house team of vegetation management crews — in collaboration with regional partners — can tailor personalized vegetation management plans, while minimizing associated costs. 

Pollinator Certified

Sun Tribe has a commitment to supporting the proliferation of native pollinator species at ground mounted solar sites. We were on the ground floor of the development of Virginia’s Pollinator-Smart / Bird Habitat Scorecard program and established the first pollinator-certified site in 2020. 

Pollinator-friendly solar sites leverage native vegetation to support birds, butterflies, and other crucial wildlife. From optimizing the native seed mix and mowing regime, to continually mapping and eradicating invasive species, Sun Tribe is committed to ensuring that native pollinator species thrive at our ground mounted solar sites.

Drone Services

We’ll be your eyes in the skies. A crucial tool in the asset management toolbox, we employ drones to collect data, pinpoint problems, and to streamline module RMAs. Our drone-related services include:

  • Infrared imaging
  • Aerial photography to identify site abnormalities and boundary conditions
  • Improved performance monitoring
  • Easily accessible reports via cloud portal with superior archival metadata 
  • Analytics and reports via Raptor Maps

We are proud to manage projects serving:
