Tom Greene Environmental Consulting was founded in 1999. We
focus on ecological site assessment
– including wetland delineation and
mitigation, endangered species surveys and management, environmental
impact assessment, natural community mapping, natural features
inventory, conservation easement documentation reports, vegetation
monitoring and related tasks. Geographic Information System and G.P.S.
are integral to our work. We have experience with governmental,
industrial, commercial and residential projects. Our approach
includes sensitivity to the needs of the client and a resource
