Mitigation Banks

Fish Tail Mitigation Bank

Fish Tail is a 5,387 acre bank which when fully constructed will be one of the largest mitigation banks in Florida. The size provides significant ecological and hydrological improvements to two large watersheds: Pellicer Creek/ Matanzas River and Crescent Lake. The highlights of this bank include:

  • The wetlands are located within significant mesic uplands and will contribute to the health and preservation of Dave Branch, Stevens Branch, Pellicer Creek and Crescent Lake.
  • Intensive silviculture will be terminated, which will ultimately return the land to its native and ecologically productive state.
  • Upon receipt of permits from both the St. Johns River Water Management District (State) and Army Corp (Federal), we will commence the removal of the planted pines (and the extensive bedding), along with hydrological improvements to allow the surface water to return to natural volumes and flow.
  • Connectivity to several significant local and regional conservation areas will result in additional land being preserved for ecological benefit.

The bank service area includes Flagler County, St. Johns County and a portion of Volusia and Putnam Counties. Fish Tail, when preserved, will provide a critical addition to the regional conservation areas for the protection of listed species (including black bears) and plant life. We can accommodate your needs for forested wetland credits in the service area, and given the size of the bank, will be able to structure an acceptable transaction.
