Adaptive forestry and ecosystem management presciptions, shwing existing, desired and reference conditions, along with monitoring and adaptie mangement solutions and restoration presciptions.

Healthy forests occur naturally, but where fire suppression is the norm, it is often helpful to compare CURRENT CONDITIONS to historical data or REFERENCE CONDITIONS, as seen in photos. RESTORATIVE PRESCRIPTIONS often strive to bring lands back to a more native state, or to reach an optimal DESIRED CONDITION that balances natural conditions with existing land use needs, including wildfire risk reduction. ADAPTIVE MANAGEMENT is a consequence of monitoring field data at appropriate intervals following prescriptive work, analyzing the changing conditions and using the data stream to create management prescriptions that evolve with the land itself.

ecosystem management:

  • Prescriptions that target specific ecological results
  • Easy to understand implementation and rotation schedules
  • Adaptive management solutions that allow for naturally evolving prescriptions
  • Comprehensive fire hazard analysis
  • Prescribed fire plan development
  • Prescription implementation management

Turn-key plans for:

  • Forest ecosystems
  • Grassland/range ecosystems
  • Aquatic and wetland ecosystems
  • Prescribed fire
  • Noxious weeds
  • Wildlife habitat
  • Threatened and endangered species

We are foresters working for sustainable ecosystems and long-term results:

Creating wildfire-tolerant and sustainable ecosystems is a commitment to comprehensive planning and implementation that guides long-term sustainable land management decisions.

We employ the most robust planning technology available, including Geographic Information Systems and remote sensing analysis, comprehensive inventories, as well as forest insect and disease surveys. These elements are used to create adaptive management plans that will protect properties for decades while improving the basic health of the forests.

From small landowners and tree farmers, to large resorts, ranches and metropolitan areas, we work to ensure comprehensive planning and sustainable ecosystems.
