Getting oak seedlings and sprouts to come back into your woodland in high numbers can be difficult, unless you take the right steps.
My wife truly enjoys seeing wildlife on our property and at the old homestead. And we do quite a bit to get a variety of wildlife to visit and stay on our land; from creating brush piles to putting out nest boxes and leaving snags.
My sister and her husband purchased some forested property in Vernon County a few years ago, and would spend most of their time there if they could. They were originally looking for land to hunt deer on, but have found they get so much more from it over time.
A family project in the woods can be a great opportunity to reconnect with relatives you haven’t seen in a while, and get a good deal of work done. A recent work day at a family property was all of that and much more. It is the much more part that I will share some insights from, today.
