FAQ

Do you work with small landowners?  What is the smallest tract you work on?

Yes, we absolutely work with small landowners.  There is not a size limit to the tracts we will work on, however, not all operations will work well on all small tracts due to location and access issues.  An on-site visit would be needed to determine workability.

 

What is your service area?

We currently serve all the western gulf states – Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, and southeastern Oklahoma.

 

How do I pay for my work?

You may pay via check or credit card.  There is a 3% surcharge for all credit card payments.  Payments are due within 30 days or a finance charge of 1% is assessed.

 

Do you take credit cards?

We do take credit cards with a 3% surcharge.

  • Texas Certified and Insured Prescribed Burn Manager

What happens if my seedlings die?

If your seedlings die, or appear to be dying, we will need to come investigate your property as well as all the steps leading up to planting.  We will make a recommendation from there.  

If we did your reforestation and you qualify for our Guaranteed Seedling Survival, we will investigate the reason for the failure and replant your property for free if the reason for failure qualifies in our guarantee guidelines.

 

How do I start the process of reforesting my property?

Starting the process is relatively simple.  We need to know the location of your property (a map works best), and when it was harvested.  From there, we may conduct an on-site visit, or through phone conversations figure out what the best method would be to get a successful stand of trees growing back on your property.  

 

Is there government assistance to perform work on my property, and if so can you help guide me through it?  

Yes, there are multiple government assistance programs for reforestation, mid-rotation activities, and prescribed burning.  We will help you determine which program would benefit you the most and work with you throughout the funding process.
