Implementation of a management plan typically commences with some form of site maintenance. Site maintenance techniques are integral tools utilized to achieve the landowner’s objectives.
Site Maintenance Practices
Site maintenance practices can also improve access to the property, increase visibility, increase security, and enhance the recreational usage of the property.
Many different types of site maintenance practices exist. Bush-hog mowing, creation or maintenance of fire lines, reduction of fuel loads, reduction of competing vegetation through chemical applications or mechanical treatments, and mulching or under-brushing of environmentally sensitive areas are just some examples of techniques utilized.
Site Maintenance and Site Security
Along with those techniques, many clients also request site security and the posting of no trespass signs along their property boundaries to reduce/eliminate the liability of trespassers within their property. Each site maintenance technique has its place in the proper management of forest and environmental lands.
Site Maintenance and Habitat Diversity
Most site maintenance practices are typically conducted in cycles about every three to five-years. At that time the same site maintenance practice can be utilized, or a landowner can vary the timing of their practices and vary the techniques utilized to maximize the diversity of their habitats. Maximizing the diversity of the habitats within a property enhances forest health, wildlife habitat, and the aesthetics of the land through the addition of a variety of flora and fauna to the property.
