Surface Leases Interactive Map

JMB actively markets and maintains leases on our acreage in Louisiana and Texas for a variety of business and recreational purposes. Since we have significant holdings along the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway in south Louisiana with highway and rail access, our lands are used for industrial, oil & gas, and seafood operations. Our wetlands in south Louisiana are used for trapping alligators, collecting alligator eggs, deer hunting and duck hunting. Mule deer, quail, elk, and aoudad are prolific and are hunted on our Texas ranches.
