What is LandServer?

LandServer is a web-based tool that provides farmers and woodland owners with a quick and easy natural resource assessment, an evaluation of their property's potential to receive payments for implementing conservation actions, and information on how to get started. Your report is only accessed with your secure User ID and password.

LandServer produces reports by analyzing a robust database of geographic, ecological, physical, and other data sets. Here are a few of the data sets used to estimate landowner eligibility for conservation funding:
