Wetlands Management, LP, is a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Rosewood Corporation, a family-owned and operated company headquartered in Texas with diverse operations and investments.
For generations, our company has operated around the core principals of honesty and integrity, and our long-term investment perspective enables us to be ideal sponsors of mitigation projects. We have the expertise and financial resources to restore large contiguous, mature, diverse aquatic resources and provide a source for off-site compensatory mitigation.
As mitigation bank sponsors, we:
The Bunker Sands Mitigation Bank restores and enhances 1,202 acres of aquatic ecosystem function while providing landscape-scale watershed protection. Plant communities are managed to those that best represent the potential natural vegetation expected for the woodland/forest site conditions. The long-term objective is to develop a mature bottomland hardwood stand dominated by desirable mast-producing species, with associated native tree, shrub, and groundcover species typical of pre-settlement conditions along the upper to mid Trinity River basin of Texas. WRRDA 2014 de-authorizes Kaufman County Levees K5E and K5W, reestablishing floodplain connectivity and allowing restoration of instream aquatic habitat.
The Bill Moore Mitigation Bank provides functional uplift to the instream aquatic habitat of 50,230 linear feet of ephemeral and intermittent stream, as well as re-establishing riparian buffers within the Trinity River watershed. The Bank establishes a stable stream channel dimension, pattern and profile in stream segments where one or more of these parameters are unstable, and enhances the stable segments through native riparian plantings and cattle exclusion fencing. A riparian buffer has been established to accommodate belt width and long-term, stable channel meander adjustments. In a few of the headwater areas, the entire upper watershed area has been restored to a natural vegetation community.
Because of federal protection of our nation’s watersheds, there has been an increased value of water resources. For landowners who are blessed with these resources on their property, Wetlands Management, LP is an ideal partner to help you capitalize in this ecosystem marketplace.
We are also landowners with farm and ranch operations in eight different counties in Texas, and believe that compensatory mitigation can be the highest and best use of the land if the right circumstances are in place. Restoration can provide value to the landowner by minimizing floodwater impacts, improving groundwater, and enhancing wildlife conditions. Evaluation of the landscape and site conditions will dictate what makes a good stream or wetland mitigation site.
