Paul Cowie & Associates, Inc. (PC+A) is a professional consulting firm providing expert advice in the preservation, enhancement and long-term management of shade trees and urban forest resources.

PC+A was initially founded in 1988 as a part-time service providing technical assistance to a variety of green industry professionals, building contractors and property managers.  It grew rapidly into a full-time practice and its clientele expanded to include architects, engineers, land developers, and municipal governments.

PC+A is nimbly structured to function as the primary consultant on tree management projects and as a design team specialist on larger, multi-disciplinary projects.  All projects are completed in full, or directly managed by Paul Cowie, the firm’s president.

PC+A maintains a close association with expert professionals in several related disciplines – horticulturists, landscape architects, pathologists, entomologists, soil scientists, and others – so that the best technical strengths are readily available for any project.  Together, we will find a cost-effective solution for the most challenging problems.

PC+A has developed a unique niche and reputation for providing a high level of technical expertise and problem-solving ability, and for effectively bridging the gap between current scientific research and real-world application.

Recent projects of note include:

In addition, PC+A has prepared over 95 Community Forestry Management Plans focusing on urban street trees for New Jersey municipalities and counties in accordance with the New Jersey Shade Tree & Community Forestry Assistance Act (P.L. 1996, Chapter 135).
