New from The Woods in Your Backyard Partnership:“Woodland Health Practices Handbook: A Practitioner’s Guide for Creating, Enhancing and Maintaining Natural Areas”

Written for green industry professionals, land managers and forest industry professionals in the eastern U.S., this guide promotes land stewardship for the owner’s enjoyment and for improved environmental quality. The handbook outlines small-scale natural areas management services including wildlife habitat enhancement, forestry practices, chosen tree release, creating natural havens, invasive plant and insect identification and control, creating food plots, and more.

This resource manual and the accompanying specialized checklist tool helps professionals determine which enhancement practices are suitable for a given property/site. The handbook includes over 60 color photos, an overview of land management techniques, a glossary, and an index. The checklist and a set of tables to develop management actions will assist you in developing land care plans based on your clients’ objectives. Examples of land care plans are also included.

Funding for this project was provided by the Harry R. Hughes Center for Agro-Ecology, Inc.
