Wildlife Habitat Enhancement
Habitat is a combination of food, water, shelter and physical space in which wildlife live. Habitat quality and quantity are primary factors that determine the size and health of wildlife populations.
F&W foresters have been helping to create diverse habitat in southern New England for over 30 years through practices such as timber sales and tree planting. Species that benefit from the regeneration and other conditions that typically develop following timber harvests include deer, songbirds, small mammals and many others.
We work with landowners to determine the best course of action to develop the kinds of habitats required by the wildlife that interest them. F&W foresters then guide landowners through the activities that can create the desired effect.
For landowners especially interested in managing for bird habitat, Audubon CT has an exciting program called the Forest Bird Initiative. Audubon CT performs forest bird habitat assessments for landowners whose property qualifies. For more information on this program and how to apply see the Forest Bird Initiative website.
