"Nature" will no longer do the work unaided. Nature – if by that we mean blind and non-conscious forces – has, marvelously, produced man and consciousness; they must together carry on the task to new results which she alone can never reach."
– Julian Huxley
"If a little knowledge is dangerous, where is the man who has so much as to be out of danger?"
– Thomas H. Huxley
"What we see depends mainly on what we look for."

Our Global Business Model
In brief, ATICA (Affiliated Timber Investment Conversion Advisors, Inc.) is a full service, globally based "Seedling-to-Lumber Market" supply chain consulting organization. In addition, as forestry consultants, our passion is to support institutional investors, owners and operators to: i) Define the driving success engines and impediments to their profit, cash flow and conversion center yields, ii) Benchmark these key drivers through a World Class Executive Dashboard and iii) Assist leadership to mitigate their investment and operating risks while improving their risk adjusted rate of returns.
"If you don’t measure it ...
You can’t manage it."
In today’s business environment, the principles that drive the corporate cultures of world class organizations are continually focusing their people’s attention on alternative i) methods, ii) means and iii) motivation to improve their collective effectiveness and efficiencies in order to get a firm grasp and control over their key production drivers (KPD’s) and indicators (KPI’s) that support growing and sustainable businesses.
Matrix, Latin ... The crucible of creation.
