What is LandServer?

Get to know your woods! LandServer provides woodland owners with a quick and easy assessment of their property's natural resources including soils, wildlife, and water. Knowing more about your woods can help you better enjoy them and keep them working for you. LandServer also estimates your eligibility to receive payments for implementing conservation actions. You can access your report(s) with your secure User ID and password.
