Forestry Practices

"I will argue that every scrap of biological diversity is priceless, to be learned and cherished, and never to be surrendered without a struggle." - E.O. Wilson

Invasive brush is among the most prevalent and detrimental group of invasive species in the Midwest and can spread aggressively once introduced if not addressed early. Invasive brush has been shown to alter soil ecology, reduce tree regeneration, tree growth and longevity, and alter native ground cover; which over time can make restoration efforts more difficult.

Buckthorn is notorious for invading various wisconsin habitats including woodlands, prairies, wetlands, parks, and backyards. It quickly takes over areas, outcompeting native species, altering ecosystem structure and inhibiting wildlife. 

Depending on your woody invasive control needs, we offer multiple treatment options for suppressing the spread of the species. Treatment methods include: Cutting and herbicide treatment, girdling, basal-bark herbicide treatments, foliar herbicide treatments, burning, and cutting and chipping.

Other forestry services provided to improve ecological health include: TSI services (Timber Stand Improvement), MFL services (Managed Forest Law), large tree felling, tree sapling plantings, and forestry management plans.
