WE ARE SLATE MAPPING
YOUR LOCAL MAPPER & TEXAS TIMBER APPRAISAL EXEMPTION CONSULTANT
We're a small business located in Southeast Texas. We enjoy being surrounded by nature while assisting people in understanding & utilizing their properties.
We have extensive experience in applying for Open-Space 1D1 Timber Appraisals as well as Restricted Use Timber Appraisals, classifying over 30,000 acres a year.
We have assisted the local Appraisal District since 2013, classifying the properties per the tax code and hope to work with one more appraisal district in the near future.
Over the years, we have noticed there is a need for assistance in this area. Most landowners do not know the intricacies of applying for a timber appraisal. Some county appraisal districts are not classifying these properties per the tax code due to a lack of staff with knowledge in forestry and/or GIS. Many landowners ( including many TIMOs and REITs ) are not taking advantage of the restricted use appraisals such as streamside management zones, reforestation, or aesthetic management zones.
We create topographic, soils, aerial maps and more using the highest quality images we have available to us.
