Quality Oaks, Pines, and Wildlife, Waushara County Wisconsin dense white pine with Woodland Management Service Forester

  175 Thousand Acres of Forested Wildlife habitat can be found in this beautiful Central Wisconsin County.

Though the Oaks here are not spectacular, the pines are exceptional.

One delightful remnant of a foresters advice from the mid part of the last century stands out with spectacular results.

That bit of advice that he gave to all who planted pines here was to mix a little bit of White Pine in with all of the Red Pines that were being planted.

The result of planting this row of White Pine to every three rows of Red Pines was a slightly lower return in the first few thinnings (generally at age 20 and 28), but after this the white pines would start naturally seeding in between the rows, eliminating any need for future planting.

In addition to the self planting these White Pines are also a longer lived tree, ensuring the potential for a more climax type forest for the future.

We now have many forests in this county where the pine plantations no longer look so much like a plantation as they do a dense semi natural White pine forest.

 

  Our clients at Woodland Management Service own land here for the bountiful wildlife and for the quality Pine and Oak timber.

 

 

  The largest portion of this 175 thousand acres of forest land is Oak with over 66 thousand acres of Oak forests which provide premium deer and turkey habitat along with timber income.   The second largest group of forests is the Pines and Spruces with 55  thousand acres.

 

 

Oaks

These forests are not only good for producing income for our clients and great habitat for Deer and Turkeys, but it also provide good habitat for many other wildlife like Bears, Grouse, and more.
