Geo Consulting brings experience in the forestry, agriculture, bio-energy, real estate development and disaster recovery sectors, where the rehabilitation of landscapes and livelihoods go hand in hand.
We work with both private and public entities—businesses, non-profits, public service, and universities—who are bringing innovative products and programs to scale for the benefit of both natural resource landscapes and rural communities.
