The Natives Inc. is a multidisciplinary firm offering a wide range of services that include consulting, restoration design, restoration implementation,  custom designed native seed mixes, and a wholesale nursery growing only Florida native plants.

Established in 1982 we have pioneered upland restoration work in scrub, sandhill, and flatwoods systems. We have also devoted many years to research and experimentation to develop effective methods for propagating and growing native species, including many rare and endangered species.

The firm includes four principals; Nancy J. Bissett (restoration ecologist, horticulturist, and botanist),  Paul Abel (restoration manager, equipment manger, physical plant manager), William F. Bissett (marketing ),  Sarah Kiefer (business manager and nursery manager),
