The advantages and needs of Early Successional Habitat (ESH)–the old field scrub /shrub and that created through timber management and the role ESH plays in the landscape.

This webinar informs landowners, managers and consultants of the advantages and needs of Early Successional Habitat (ESH) within the landscape - there are two distinct types: the old field scrub /shrub and that created through timber management. We cover a brief history of how we got to where we are today with the condition of our forest and the low percentage of ESH within the landscape. With a lack of quality ESH due to urban sprawl and lack of forest management, there is a decline of songbirds as well as ruffed grouse and American woodcock. ESH benefits a wide range of native flora and fauna from a bottom up approach.
