At CMA, we understand the need to balance development with the protection of natural resources.  We work with our clients to identify protected natural resources, including wetlands, coastal/marine resources (mangroves, corals, seagrass), upland trees, and threatened and endangered fauna/flora that may conflict with their proposed infrastructure projects.  Our staff includes SWS Professional Wetland Scientists, UF Florida Master Naturalists, and ISA Certified Arborists who can perform quantitative and qualitative assessments of protected natural resources, and who work directly with our civil engineers to design projects to avoid/minimize resource impacts or develop mitigation strategies to offset unavoidable impacts.  Mitigation strategies may include habitat restoration design for freshwater wetlands, uplands, coastal wetlands, or marine habitats, and mitigation bank coordination.
