Cover is Key

Cover, Wildlife Habitat Management

Have you ever walked through a Catskill Forest and been able to see hundreds of yards in a single direction? It’s a great sight, but signifies a completely unhealthy forest. Where is the cover for wildlife to live in? Cover can be created through our Forestry for Wildlife program by cutting the right trees for the right reasons. Check out the cover created on this member’s property this summer. Wildlife are clearly living here based on the droppings, hair, and browse. I think I even saw a mountain man lurking in the brush.
