Having a clearly marked boundary line is essential for all woodland owners, and a requirement for both CAUV and OFTL. A well marked line can help deter trespassing and prevent timber theft. We have the skills and experience to locate corner pins, interpret deed descriptions, follow compass bearings, and paint your boundary line to the specifications required by the CAUV and OFTL programs.
Boundary Line Marking
Using geographic information system (GIS) and geographic positioning system (GPS) technology we can accurately map your property on topographic and aerial photographic backgrounds. We can delinate forest types, trails, streams, food plots, tree planting areas, harvest areas, and many other attributes.
Many landowners wish to improve the quality of the wildlife habitat on their property. For hunters and non-hunters alike, enhancing wildlife habitat can be a top priority. We can assess the habitat attributes on your property and provide advice on maximizing your forest's potential to attract and retain wildlife.
The EQIP cost-share program offers some useful practices for wildlife such as creating brush piles and downed tree structures, edgefeathering, and vernal pool construction.
Wildlife Habitat Enhancement
The forests in our region regenerate naturally from seed and from stump/root sprouts, but there are times when supplemental planting is desired. Tree planting is most commonly done in non-forested areas, like open fields. We can help you choose the best species of tree to plant based on your objectives and your specific site characteristics, such as soil type and slope aspect.
The EQIP cost-share program offers practices for tree planting projects such as site preparation, direct seeding, and bareroot seedlings with tree shelters.
