ENHANCING WILDLIFE HABITAT FOR LEBANON LANDOWNERS
Spring is here and it’s a great time to get out and explore your woods. When you’re out exploring – doesn’t it feel great when you see a variety of wildlife? Whether its wild turkeys, songbirds or larger animals like deer. Have you ever thought it would be nice to see even more of these woodland animals on your property? By hiring a professional forestry and wildlife management company to manage your forestland – you can have that desire granted. The foresters at Stillwater Forestry LLC are VT & NH wildlife management specialists. Owned by a NH licensed forester, who has spent most of his life working and recreating in the woods- we are a company that has the expertise necessary to manage your forests for the optimal habitat for whatever wildlife interests you.
The key to bringing more wildlife into your woods is to manage your forest so that the optimal habitat for the wild animals you want to see, is created. Habitat consists of food, water and shelter. For example: If you own a woodlot with Oak and other hardwoods and your goal is see more turkey and deer on your property – we can come up with a management strategy that can achieve this. It might involve thinning out the hardwoods that are competing with the Oaks with the largest crowns, making sure the Hornbeams ( a tree that produces seeds that Turkeys feed on) are released and not damaged by the thinning. Upon completion of the thinning, seeding in the harvest yarding area with a clover mix. The following spring planting a small group of white pine, spruce or fir – to act as shelter - at the end of the harvest yarding area.
This is just one example of the expert advice and strategies we can provide so that native wildlife becomes an abundant fixture on your property. Stillwater Forestry LLC is your Lebanon wildlife habitat improvement service company. Give us a call today.
