Art Dyas of Southeastern Natural
Resources in Mobile keeps his forestry
consultancy small to offer the best
service to his clients and stay
flexible. When larger projects come
along, the network of consulting
foresters throughout the southeast will
often combine forces to complete the
project. He also has a real estate
brokerís license and provides a full
range of services, from land acquisition
and sales to invasive species control, a
big problem in the Mobile region.
Cogongrass in particular can destroy a
tract of land. If left unchecked, he
said, there will never be another stand
of trees on that acre. When assessing
new properties, he includes an expert
analysis of the prospective cost of
controlling any invasives on the tract.
So near the coast, hurricanes are
another a major concern for his clients
because the best-managed stands receive
the worst damage. Well-spaced, tall
trees donít have the protection of a
mid-story against the wind.
foresters, he takes time to learn each
landownerís objectives before hammering
out a management plan to achieve their
goals. With degrees in both forestry and
business from Auburn University, Dyas
said his strong suit is big picture
thinking. In other words, he can see the
forest for the trees.
