How do I create a wildlife paradise on my property?forest
  Like humans most wildlife species are looking for a great place to live, their habitat. 

Great wildlife habitat includes a good mix of food, shelter, and water. 

The main way forest and wildlife managers create habitat for wildlife is by managing the stages of forest succession.  

Forest succession is basically the path that a forest takes from an open field, to young even aged trees, to older uneven aged trees, and finally to a mature climax forest.  

forest succession and wildlifeCreating various wildlife habitats generally involves harvesting trees, planting trees, and or allowing nature to take its course. 

Most wildlife species require a mix of these different successional stages, using the younger forest and open areas for feeding and the older forests for cover. 

The majority of the wildlife species live right on these edges.forest succession

 

 

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.

Bob, I would love to have a wildlife paradise on my property, but I live in a townhouse! Fortunately, I live right next to Mt. Mansfield State Forest so I have a plethora of wildlife right next door!  Good post. I like the graphics. Thank you for visiting my blog.

Bob   I live in a county with several hundred thousand acres of National Forest and BLM land.  We live in fear of forest fires, pine beetles, insurance regulations/requirements...  There are many on both sides of the fence...do nothing and do everything.  GREAT blog and thanks for sharing....suggested
