landowners

For landowners, our solutions approach is to assist you in identifying and addressing the goals you have for your land.  Many landowners seek our help to maximize land value while maintaining the ability to adapt to future land use potential (i.e., development, sale, bequeathing to heirs, etc.)  Before you commit your property to a buyer, make sure you look at ALL options, as well as both present and future value potential of your land.  If you are interested in seeing what hidden value may be on your properties, contact us and let us help you discover ways to restore your aquatic resources, conserve your landscapes, and see financial returns.

Mitigation Credit Consumers

The mitigation industry has experienced significant regulatory changes over the past decade, including the 2008 Mitigation Rule as well as various state regulatory shifts and changes.  These changes include new credit types being placed on the market, increased jurisdictional ranges, and different compensation requirements for lost resources.  With expertise and experience in multiple states and US Army Corps of Engineers districts, we provide you solutions to identify the most cost-effective and time-sensitive pathway to successful mitigation credit procurement.
