Together, Apple Leaf staff members have worked for more than ten years with GIS, Biological Assessments, and Wetland Delineation. Our approach is based on proven sampling methodologies and extensive field experience.
Apple Leaf provides clients and other stakeholders with concise and comprehensive biological assessments and inventories. Our goal is to use leading scientific methodologies to collect quality, unbiased data and objectively delineate wetlands. These processes help growers, organizations, and government representatives reach informed, conclusive decisions.
Apple Leaf staff members are seasoned biologists with more than ten years’ cumulative experience in assessing and monitoring ecosystems. Staff members are knowledgeable about both state and federal environmental policies, regulations, and assessment and delineation processes. We hold various certifications and have conducted surveys of endangered, threatened, and sensitive species for clients such as the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the National Marine Fisheries Service, the National Park Service, the U.S. Forest Service. We have worked with organizations in Hungary, Slovakia, and the Czech Republic, and with developers in the Hudson Valley region of New York State.
Fundamental to Apple Leaf's development of meticulous, comprehensive biological data is our preparation period. Before field work is conducted, we interview federal, state, and local experts and research all possible empirical evidence available regarding the species in question. We believe that data must be accurate and transparent in order for our clients to make sound decisions.
