Create New Woodlots or Expand Existing Ones
Planting trees in unused patches of yard or field is a great way to help the environment and to improve wildlife habitat. Planting trees adjacent to existing woodland patches or connecting separate woodland patches is especially helpful in maintaining overall woodland health and enhancing wildlife habitat. Expanding an existing woodlot can help offset losses from land-use change and development.
Plant a Diversity of Native Trees
A diverse woodlot is better able to handle pest and disease outbreaks. Native trees provide high-quality wildlife habitat and pose no threat of overgrowth or crowding out other plants.
