Treeline Ecological Research conducts ecological and other scientific studies on behalf of
governments, industry, conservation groups, non-governmental organizations and citizens, and
First Nations. Treeline has expertise in a wide range of disciplines. Our studies encompass areas
as diverse as environmental health, water quality and contaminants, vegetation and landscape
ecology, rare flora, conservation planning, climatology and hydrology, habitat evaluation,
environmental and population change over time, and long-term ecological monitoring.
Experience has shown that new insights are gained in proportion to the interdisciplinary
knowledge brought to bear on a problem. For that reason, our approach is to examine all relevant
data, test all assumptions, and use interdisciplinary approaches.
Treeline is unique in its field. Its principal investigator, Dr. Kevin Timoney, leads all studies.
Timoney is both an academic and a consultant, bringing a high level of scientific knowledge and
academic rigor to investigations. Wherever possible, data analyses look across time (past,
present, and future), across space and across spatial scales, and look at each problem with
multiple analytical lenses. Close working relationships with other scientists, university students,
and geographic consultants provide diverse scientific and analytical capabilities and the use of
powerful geographic information system and mapping applications. Studies in remote areas with
minimum logistical support are a forte. We have extensive research experience in wetland,
forest, boreal, subarctic, arctic, and alpine environments.
