Habitat Improvement

This winter we’ve been cutting trees as part of a Natural Resources Conservations Services (NRCS) program to increase forest health. The downed tops help create better soil conditions, along with adding habitat for a variety of animals. We are clearing out some of the competition for the oaks, giving them more canopy room to spread out, and soak up sunlight. The downed wood creates more ground level habitat, like bedding areas for our deer, cover for grouse, turkey and everything else.
