    About Southern States Land & Timber


    Southern States Land & Timber LLC (SSLT) seeks a balance between good stewardship of its asset base for the long term benefit of its shareholders. As mineral and surface rights holders, we partner with surface land owners to promote and facilitate commerce and development in a manner beneficial to all parties. Southern States is wholly owned by The J.M. Burguières Co., Limited.

    We now offer Wetland Mitigation Credits and Conservation Credits for compensatory mitigation.   This allows landowners who wish to develop their property the ability to maintain compliance with the Endangered Species Act. The purchase of Wetland Mitigation and Conservation Credits will speed permitting time, provide regulatory assurance, and eliminate landowner liability.


    Our History

    Southern States Land & Timber LLC, a prime element of the South Florida economy since the early 1900's, once owned about 2,000,000 acres in what are now Martin, Palm Beach, Broward, Dade. Collier, Lee, Hendry, and Desoto counties. From the early 1900's to the 1950's Southern States Land and Timber developed experimental and demonstration farms involving sugar cane, ramie, citrus and varieties of vegetables. By the mid 1970’s most of the company’s land interests had been sold, except for reserved mineral interests in Palm Beach and Martin counties. Now Southern State’s operations focus on its reserved mineral interests and the associated surface access rights retained in south Florida.
