Mitigation Banking

Mitigation Banking

The Barn Group Land Trust has designed, implemented and maintained multiple mitigation projects, and understands what is necessary to implement successful, cost-effective mitigation plans. Our diverse staff has multidisciplinary expertise, which means we can provide integrated services throughout the full lifecycle of mitigation efforts – from initial permitting negotiations to comprehensive maintenance programs to ensure permit compliance.

The Barn Group Land Trust's in-depth experience means that we can recognize issues early in mitigation efforts, before they become a large problem or expense. Our professionals can determine why the project is not working and then design and implement a corrective action plan.

Our comprehensive services include field evaluations, development of site-specific mitigation plans for permit approval, obtaining and installing plant material, monitoring the results and providing reports for submittal to agencies and controlling the colonization of undesirable or exotic species.

We develop habitat restoration and business plans to evaluate opportunities and constraints of project sites and determine regional credit markets. Our technical and business teams work with property owners and existing mitigation bankers to plan, establish, and build banks. We develop strategies for land management and site use planning to generate the maximum return on investment for long term planning from the “ecological” perspective involving site closure and conservatorship.
