Integrating Timber and Songbird Habitat Management

Integrating Timber and Songbird Habitat Management

Wednesday, October 12

4:30-6 PM


What makes a good “crop” tree? Crop trees are trees that produce benefits, such as food or shelter for wildlife, timber revenue for the landowner, or water quality protection.

Join Women Owning Woodlands Vermont (WOW VT) at one of VLT’s properties where a Vermont Youth Conservation Corps crew is working on a forest management project called a crop tree release with canopy gap formation. Learn how you can improve the health of your crop trees and create songbird habitat by cutting trees that directly compete with them for light. WOW VT programs are tailored towards those who identify as female, but all are welcome to participate. Click here to register.
