We have California’s largest urban and community forestry practice with certified and licensed forestry professionals who bring a wide range of project expertise and insight to planning and design. Our experts integrate multiple landscape-level disciplines (trees, irrigation systems, soils, air and hardscape features) to design urban forests that provide benefits such as measureable values for carbon sequestration and climate change offsets, energy savings, erosion reduction and water quality improvements. We are specialists in turning around under-performing forests located in harsh environments with poor soils, poor air quality, improper moisture and other stressors.
We have successfully completed CEQA-supporting oak management plans ranging from a few trees for a single-family home to hundreds of thousands of oaks on sites designated for master-planned communities.
We focus on understanding the site, its trees, and potential constraints and opportunities. Supported by GIS-based impact analysis, we develop a strategic mitigation plan customized for a site that meets the landowner’s project goals and complies with state and local resource agencies. When required, we calculate anticipated net carbon footprint and design a mitigation to maximize carbon sequestration and minimize the project’s carbon footprint.
