This association of contractors brings together people having similar interests and opportunities for improving our natural resources with an adequate profit.

LICA History

The Land Improvement Contractors of America is an organization of earth moving contractors who care about the environment. Concerned contractors who worked to conserve the land and water resources started LICA in 1950. Today we have members and state chapters coast to coast. Their conservation ethic has continued to be and will continue to be the hallmark of LICA.

For over sixty years, LICA contractors have paved the way for our country’s growth and expansion. Our contractors provide a wide range of services: grading, excavating, drainage, landscaping, paving, wetland development and site preparation just to name a few. They work in cities, on farms, ranches and in rural areas. They work with dedication and commitment to the professional conservation of soil and water.  You should always choose a LICA Contractor, for all your construction needs.  Look for the familiar LICA triangle proudly displayed on our equipment.

LICA contractors strive to improve the business climate by working for better legislation and regulations, and keeping abreast of the current changes impacting their business, and providing training in the latest technology.
