Property Walks – are a chance to ask questions about your property, and a chance for us to help point out some of the unique features that would benefit from your stewardship. These walks can be as long or as short as you would like and can be used for preliminary information gathering prior to larger steps or can be recreational; have some friends over and hike through the woods learning about the land. You will have the option to have Allan help you focus on wildlife, Keith turn your attention to the trees, or both, to promote multifaceted conversations that may have you seeing your property in a whole new way at the end of the day.
Maps – are one of the best tools a landowner can have in learningand managing their land. Maps of all sorts are available and made with the most up to date mapping technology, GIS software, differential GPS, and printed from a large format printer. You can have every inch of trail mapped out, all of your favorite spots, bear mast trees, soils, natural communities, etc. If you can dream the map, we can make it. We can then use these maps to guide and inform future management.
Management Plans - are the foundation of all good land management. They start with information gathering and compile the data to get an understanding of the current condition of a piece of property. Then, based on land owner objectives, management actions (or inaction depending on current condition) are scheduled for coming years. These plans can satisfy requirements for the current use program or simply provide the approach by which you as a landowner can achieve the vision for your land. Property walks are required at the completion of all management plans in order to ensure the greatest understanding, connection, and appreciation of all recommendations.
Wildlife Habitat Management Plan – is a type of management plan that focuses on improving habitat for a specific or a variety ofwildlife species. Plans usually include promoting food resources and/or improving or preserving structural components of habitats that affect wildlife needs such as movement, shelter, or foraging niches. These plans can work well in conjunction with a variety of other management plan objectives.
Current Use Enrollment - The current use program is an incentive program designed to provide reduced tax burdens to landowners committing to manage their land for forest, or agricultural purposes. This offers landowners a basic forest stand map, a management plan and the filing of necessary paperwork. There are some restrictions to which properties may be enrolled in the program so it is necessary to review the fine print which we can provide some guidance with. Give us a call and ask us if the program would make sense for you.
Wildlife Research – is for anybody interested in knowing generallyor exactly what animals are out there and what they are doing on a property. This service can tailor to anybody from the inquisitive/interested landowner wanting to learn more about their property to the developer ensuring their work will not adversely affect specific species or to governmental agencies contributed to scientific research. Please see our wildlife research page for further information.
