FAQ Is leaving my woodland alone the best option for Wildlife and Forest Health?
Leaving your forest alone is seldom the best option for either wildlife habitat or a healthy forest. An unmanaged forest will become stagnant reducing the amount of food for wildlife and crowding out all of the younger trees which are important for the next generation of the forest. Most wildlife requires a diverse forest with varied ages and types of trees for both food and shelter. And a healthy sustainable forest requires various ages of trees to enable future generations.
When managing your forest, if you’re interested in managing your forest to its highest potential, contact a consulting forester who can advise you on the best option for both your forest and the wildfolks that live there.
