Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


There are numerous simple practices creating habitat for both game and non-game wildlife in hardwood stands. Forest-dwelling wildlife populations can be linked to hard mast production. In order to improve nut production is to focus to some timber management on identifying specific trees that have capability in producing large mast crops. One of the best methods of giving hard mast room to grow is by using a crown touching release. Wildlife management objectives should be understood in order to ensure that timber production objectives will be compatible with wildlife objectives.
