Linking the Wild

February 15, 2008

Late winter is a great time to improve wildlife habitat; Wild Link has been working with private landowner participants on a number of projects.

Wild Apple Rejuvenation: Many neglected old apple trees are scattered around northern Michigan. These trees are a valuable source of food for many species of wildlife, especially before migration and the long snowy winters. Wild Link teamed with two landowners to prune the old apple trees on their properties and assisted with fertilizing them. The pruning and fertilizing will increase fruit production for wildlife.

Wildlife Stand Improvement: With support from Rotary Charities of Traverse City and the MDEQ Coastal Management Program Wild Link recently completed the first habitat management plan for a landowner in the Kingsley Wildlife Corridor. The first project completed on this property was opening the canopy around approximately 30 overstory red and white oaks. These cuttings will increase sunlight and reduce competition around the oaks which leads to increased growth and acorn production. It also provided the landowner with plenty of firewood to sell this fall.
