Federal, state, and local regulations often put severe restrictions on 'wetlands'.
Usually, any modifications must be pre-approved (and subject to impact studies).
Even though it is your land (and they charge property taxes on it), they may not allow you to do any modifications to it.

IE: A person who is very familiar & comfortable with Food Forest would probably lean to forest land. A person who was depending on Solar or who was used to growing crops in a field is going to choose that type of property.
Might want to suggest this to your friend as in "How are you planning to use the land"? "What is your area of expertise"?
are Chinampas...considered a modification?
