FAQ  Is leaving my woodland alone the best option for Wildlife and Forest Health?moose  http://cdn.morguefile.com/imageData/public/files/c/cimmy/preview/fldr_2008_11_08/file000282818618.jpg
  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.
forest  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.

I bet this is a common question Bob. It makes sense that a managed forest can be an improvement.

I always hate seeing a tree cut down, however after reading your last two posts, now I understand why some trees need to be removed to keep a forest healthy.

Thanks for stopping by Tom and Lisa, yes a little thinning to create a healthy forest produces a lot of food and better cover for most wildlife.
