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 within 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. That same year, we opened our first Seattle branch office. We continued to expand our service area, successfully completing major telecommunications and electric transmission projects in New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, and Washington, as well as several significant, statewide utility and transportation projects in Arizona and Washington.

Tierra began providing National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA)–related environmental and biological compliance services in 2000. We founded our Phoenix branch the same year. During this time, Tierra expanded operations in California, completing several projects for public agencies and regional utility companies. Other branch openings followed, including our Santa Fe office in 2001, Las Vegas in 2004, and Albuquerque in 2011.

Today, Tierra is one of the top turnkey land services firms in the western United States. Over 25 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.

"Tierra has been instrumental in working with the City [of Tucson]/Tucson Department of Transportation (TDOT) in creating and providing an Acquisition Outreach Program for use in the City's larger corridor projects. This program not only provided educational opportunities for residents and business owners impacted by TDOT projects, but provided a much needed explanation and learning opportunity for City staff as well. Throughout the entire process, Tierra's staff was professional, courteous, and confident during the creation process as well as during the outreach. The excellence and integrity of their staff was obvious to everyone who participated in the process, as evidenced by the outstanding feedback the City received after each seminar."
