Wildlife Habitat on Your Property

Forest landowners often enjoy creating wildlife habitat on their properties. Learn how to do so while preventing wildlife/human conflicts and protecting lands for the future.

Forest landowners often have a small number of acres close to their homes they would like to enhance for wildlife, while preventing wildlife/human conflicts close to their dwellings. Many would like to develop habitat for small game, song birds, and larger wildlife species on their land while protecting their lands for future generations. These goals are not mutually exclusive if short and long term objectives are established and management options are put in place to reach the owners' wildlife and habitat goals.
