Wildlife Habitat Improvement with a Chainsaw Part 1

  I was watching Larry the cable guy on the History channel a few weeks ago.  They were up in Alaska trying to use a moose call to bring in some moose, and they were unsuccessful until one of the researchers brought out a chainsaw and started it up, and the moose came Running in.

 

  The head Wildlife Specialist at Woodland Management Service, Jesse Kulesa, always tells his clients that the best thing they can do to attract most wildlife is to do some cutting.

  Having a winter timber sale or improvement cutting does two things to attract wildlife.

  First it provides plentiful tender nutritious buds for deer and other wildlife to feast on and herds of deer will often congregate around logging crews to feast on the freshly fallen branches.

  Second the recently cut trees will vigorously sprout in the spring producing ample food for the next few winters, until the trees grow past the point where the buds are reachable by the wild critters who like to feast on them.

  If you think that your wildlife watching goals conflict with your forest income goals, talk to a Forester or Wildlife Specialist at Woodland Management Service and we can help to work out the best solution for both Timber and Wildlife Management on your land!

Hi Bob,

I don't get much call (none) for this type of information in Boston but where i grew up it sure was true.

I would have thought the opposite. One of the things I enjoy about ActiveRain, you learn something new everyday.

Bob, It makes perfect sense, a litle bit like a controlled fire helping the forest replenish its flora and fauna.

This surprises me Bob, I would have thought that the loud cutting would have driven the wildlife away. Thanks for the lesson today.
