Dougherty & Dougherty Forestry Services enjoys assisting private forest landowners with their wildlife management needs. The goal in doing so is to tailor the management to the owner’s species of interest, to their wildlife management budget, and to their personal desires. Our desire is to show maximum, measured results for the investment in time and capital committed. To achieve this goal, services offered fall into one of following four categories:
This timber stand has been thinned to a low density. An annual prescribed understory burn is completed on a large portion of the tract each year. In addition, annual disking is completed in some areas. The thinning allows more sunlight to reach the forest floor.
The burning and disking promote the production of natural legumes, seed-bearing plants and cover plants. The cover present is a mix of escape, brood-rearing and nesting cover. The result of these collective management activities is quality deer, turkey and quail habitat with high volumes of forage and plenty of cover.
Please feel free to contact us to discuss how we can work with you to make your wildlife habitat dreams come to reality.
