Southern States Land & Timber

Southern States Land & Timber

Southern States Land & Timber is wholly owned by the J. M. Burguières Co., Limited.

We offer Wetland Mitigation Credits and Conservation Credits for compensatory mitigation. This allows landowners who wish to develop their property the ability to maintain compliance with the Endangered Species Act. The purchase of Wetland Mitigation and Conservation Credits will speed permitting time, provide regulatory assurance, and eliminate landowner liability. As mineral and surface rights holders, we partner with surface land owners to promote and facilitate commerce and development in a manner beneficial to all parties.      


We are experienced in all facets of Ecological Offset Site creation: site selection and project feasibility analysis, permitting, design, construction, monitoring and maintenance, and offset mitigation credit sales. SSLT currently has eleven Ecological Offset Projects underway across seven Mitigation Service Areas. Currently, SSLT offers access waivers to current owners affected by our reserved mineral and surface rights retained in south Florida.
