1/1/2022 update: PlanTierra has discontinued consulting services. Our team of consultants is now working as part of Formation Environmental, our long-time partner and collaborator. Formation was also a natural landing spot for us because of their outstanding staff, capabilities, and infrastructure, and because of their existing relationships with our staff and clients. Our previous contact information remains in effect. Individual staff will alert folks in their networks of any subsequent changes. Thanks very much to our friends, partners, clients, and service providers for their support during the last 11.5 years!   

PlanTierra, an environmental consulting firm, was founded in Davis, Calif. in June 2010 to provide senior scientific (primarily soils, agronomic, ecological, and water quality) support to a wide variety of agricultural and non-agricultural land and water managers. Services included strategic planning, design and execution of analyses and research projects; scientific documentation; regulatory negotiation; expert witness; and collaborative problem-solving related to compliance with regulatory requirements, design and operation of facilities, and more.

We have strong relationships throughout the regulatory, agricultural, academic, and consulting communities, and work closely with federal and state agencies (e.g., Natural Resources Conservation Service, California Department of Food and Agriculture), commodities groups, municipalities, special districts (irrigation, drainage, publicly owned treatment works, and flood control), and agricultural water quality coalitions.
