Wildlife Habitat

Hudson Forestry considers wildlife habitat a key component of forest management activity. The woodscape design process identifies areas for site conversion and/or restoration to create a diversified forest which incorporates soil stabilization and erosion control measures, a stratified canopy, well designed trails, wildlife openings (meadows) and view enhancement.

Care is taken during forestry and woodscape construction projects to minimize disturbance through the use of low impact farm equipment and “good forestry” best management practices.

Hudson Forestry works with the USDA’s Natural Resource Conservation Service to provide landowners technical and financial assistance to develop Forest Stewardship Plans and implement conservation practices designed to improve access, protect the soil, maintain water quality and enhance wildlife habitat.
