About the ASTM Standard Practice for Environmental Site Assessments: Phase I Environmental Site Assessment Process for Forestland or Rural Property

SLR has been active in ASTM for nearly 20 years, as a means to network with other industry professionals, contribute to the development and improvement of standards related to transactions involving commercial property and timberlands, and to advocate for best practices in the industry. Mr. Lesh is the current task group lead for the E2247 task group, who recently published the E2247-23 standard in December of last year. The standard is widely accepted as the industry benchmark for environmental assessment of rural properties and timberlands and was published after years of work by the task group with meaningful participation by members of the environmental consulting, banking, and legal professions.
