Environmental Construction the Natural Way

Restoring North America’s Streams, Wetlands, and Waterways.


Get the job done safely and effectively.


Reduce erosion and pollution.


Restore wetlands to their natural state.


Preserve natural habitats for animals.

It’s our duty to protect the safety of our families, the environment, and our ecosystems.

Every day riverbanks are eroding to the point of instability and adding sediment to our waterways and estuaries.

The instability of erosion in our streams and rivers causes the loss of riparian vegetation such as trees and shrubs. These maintain stability for stream banks and provide a home for birds and other wildlife, while also serving as a filter from upland runoff.

Good stewardship of the land and of our water resources is an absolute necessity of our society.

North State Environmental has been in business for over 25 years and operates across North America. Together we can improve the quality of life, protect the environment and create a better world by restoring water the right way, with:

Stream Restoration

The environmental health of a river or stream supports biodiversity, recreation, and flood management. Stream restoration aims to improve the envionmental health of the river or stream and restores  them to a secure state.

Wetland Restoration

Restoring wetlands to their natural state provides water filtration and habitats for a large array of animals and insects. Removal of a threat or preventing the decline of wetland conditions is essential to ecological integrity.

Ecological Clearing

Performing an ecological approach to tree removal ensures the rootzone remains in tact.

Retention Basins/BMP

Stormwater runoff is the number one cause of erosion and can damage nearby streams and overwhelm cities. Retention Basins collect the water and release it at a rate that controls flooding and saves millions in repairs.

Dam Removal & Repair

Dams can present problems that dramatically alter a river’s flow regimen if not properly removed or repaired.

We’re bridging the gap between owners and designers by understanding their goals and providing them with options for success.

Hear what our clients have to say

“The Town of Kernersville has been pleased with the work done by North State Environmental for several projects over the years. NSE constructed a stepped biocell system next to our Public Services building, a stream restoration within a local park, and a pipe/streambank stabilization project in a neighborhood. Each of these projects had its own unique challenges but the staff was professional, patient, and respectful of others; especially when interacting with citizens near the projects. They were safe and efficient in doing their work.

Project leads were in regular contact with Town staff providing updates, willing to take elected officials on private tours with explanations during construction, listened to our needs, and were willing to brainstorm to make changes that ended up better in the long run. There always seems to be an unpredictable snafu when doing these types of environmental projects. With our projects, NSE was willing to try to find a solution that worked as close to the budget while sticking to the original intended goal or design.”
