About Tierra

Tierra Right of Way Services, Ltd., was founded in Tucson in 1989 as a local right of way firm providing acquisition and relocation assistance services to Cities, Counties, and private-sector clients in Arizona. Over the years, we steadily expanded our scope to become the nationally recognized firm we are today.

Tierra began offering cultural resource and GIS mapping services in 1993. The same years we opened our first Seattle branch office. Over the next decade, we continued to expand our service area, successfully completing work for major telecommunications and electric transmission projects in New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, and Washington, as well as several statewide utility and transportation projects in Arizona and Washington.

In 2000, we opened our Phoenix branch and began offering National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA)–related environmental and biological compliance services. Tierra also expanded operations in California, completing a number of projects for public agencies and regional utility companies. We opened branches in Santa Fe in 2001, Las Vegas in 2004, Albuquerque in 2011, and Bozeman in 2015. As of 2021, Tierra has expanded to four offices in Washington State.

Today, Tierra is one of the top turnkey land services firms in the western United States. Over 32 years in business, we have successfully provided a diverse array of acquisition and relocation, cultural resources, and environmental planning services to local, State, and Federal agencies; telecommunications, electric transmission, and pipeline companies; and renewable energy developers in 34 states.

Strategically positioned to take on projects in any region, Tierra delivers quality and cost-effective services for our clients through the expertise of our experienced, local land service professionals.
