We develop opportunities to create value in real estate. We accomplish this primarily through the permitting, execution, and management of ecological projects designed to offset negative impacts to natural ecosystem environments, such as streams, wetlands, or endangered species habitats.
Most commonly these offsets are developed in the form of ecological credit banks, although other methods occasionally include permittee-responsible projects, onsite mitigation, or nontraditional mitigation outcomes.
Our banks are developed through two basic scenarios: fee title acquisition or purchase of mitigation use rights.
Throughout our mitigation banking history, we have successfully partnered with private landowners, impactors, investment funds, and venture capitalists.
We create holistic forest management plans to successfully meet client goals and have been setting the standard in the industry for more than 30 years.
We evaluate a given tract of land not just as a pure forest product, but as a potential package of forest resources—one that includes wildlife, recreation, alternative forest products, and environmental-conservation potential.
We provide customized services for family and private forest landowners, corporations, municipalities, governmental agencies, NGOs and nonprofits, and real estate appraisers.
