Wildlife Habitat Development & Management
For many landowners, the term "wildlife habitat" is often misapplied to planted food plots or land which is simply not being used for another purpose. Our perspective is much different and relies on research, not fads and gimicks. For every species, the improvement of habitat should be specific to the needs of the local population and utilize the existing natural potential. True enhancements take into account the food, cover, and water requirements every day of every season.
While we do offer general recommendations (similar to state biologists) for habitat enhancements, the majority of our clients in this arena have specific goals or objectives in mind. Our combination of knowledge in both research science and practical implementation gives us the opportunity to be able to create a long-term plan, achieve short-term results, and then continue our assistance through the life of management.
Our services can broadly be divided and defined as follows:
-Planning: basic recommendations for specific species up to detailed comprehensive multi-year written plans.
-Implementation: subcontracting and supervising project activities, including planting shrubs, annual, and perennial cover.
-Maintenance: annual operations once habitat projects are functional (controlled burns, mowing, herbicide application, etc.)
