Forestry Project At Todd’s Property

In this video, Todd got the chance to walk around his Wisconsin swamp property with the county’s forester, Sarah. Todd wanted to take a look at this small section of woods to figure out what he could do to up his odds of shooting a nice buck out there. He found out that there was a large amount of invasive species on this small parcel, and that he would have to make a few changes to the woods. Come along with Todd and Sarah as they check out this 2 acre parcel of woods and determine how they’re going to make this spot a whitetail heaven!

 

From clearing out buckthorn, Japanese barberry, and cutting down aspen trees, Todd has a lot of work ahead of him. But thanks to the help from Sarah, he should have this spot turned into a phenomenal area for whitetails within the next couple years. If you would like to have a forester come out and assess one of your hunting spots, check out your state’s Department of Natural Resources website to find out who your area’s forester is, and if they can visit your spot. Most states will offer free services that can benefit your wildlife habitat greatly.

    In my state the DNR has Foresters that will come to your property and walk the land with you and help you develop a plan that helps the forest and/or the wildlife. I say and or because sometimes what’s best for the wildlife is not always what’s in line with the State’s long term forestry goals. So what the land owner needs to do first is mark and know your property lines and know what is your personnel goal for the property. Is your goal own long term and make it better for wildlife or is it make money from logging and then sell. The forester from my state that I used covers multiple Counties so I had to book him way in advance. He provided me with different plans for different goals and did say he had to also recommend what the State is currently trying to achieve with the forests as a whole. What the State is trying to achieve may or may not be what’s best for your goals and your financial goals. In the end you pick the plan you think is best for you. I felt it was a real blessing to have the forester walk my property with me and give me an education on all the species on my land and educate me on the alternative plans available to meet certain types of short term and long term goals . The service is free and you should take advantage of the service and the education you will receive to help you manage your property to achieve your goals.
