Real Dirt Foresters
We are experts in soil delineation for southern pine silviculture.  We produce land classification tools that forest managers, money managers, and researchers use to make better forest management decisions. Informed managers choose practices that increase return on invested capital while protecting environmental values.  
Technical Services
  • Land delineation for comprehensive land classification projects, simple single factor delineations, micro-site delineation for optimum placement of research plots, and large scale delineation for rapid evaluation of land acquisitions or exchanges.
  • Interpretation of data underlying soil polygons to extract the information needed to enhance silvicultural decisions.  Tactical and strategic decision are enhanced by visual, spatial, and quantitative analysis of land qualitites.  Your soil maps will speak your language.
  • Evaluation of productivity, economic potential, management options, and environmental risks and rewards of forest land management.
Extensive Experience
We have mapped millions of acres of industrial forest land across the southeast.  Our scientists have surveyed forest soil from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia south to the sandy flatwoods of Florida and from the organic pocosins of North Carolina west to the pineywoods of east Texas.  Our experience includes all physiographic provinces of the southeast and all commercial pine species.
