DEQ Permitting & Road Construction Oversight
The forest management staff of Compass Land Consultants has demonstrated expertise in layout, maintenance, and construction of forest roads and associated stream crossings. In the course of our current management activities on 150,000 acres of FSC certified forestland, we routinely coordinate the design and construction of forest roads that can accommodate the heavy loads associated with timber harvesting. We work directly with local road construction contractors to ensure that the clients’ goals are implemented in an efficient and cost effective manner. In addition, we have developed expertise in installing stream crossings, such as culverts and bridges, to standards that meet or exceed the requirements of state environmental permitting processes. Our track record of stream protection is evident throughout the forests we manage. Through careful field measurements and terrain assessment, the staff at Compass Land Consultants is able to establish roads in forested areas that result in the least damage to the landscape and hydrologic systems.
