Forest Management Funds Available
Attention forest Landowners:
There are federal cost-share funds available through the Natural Resources Conservation
Service for landowners interested in creating early successional forest habitat on their
property in Garrett, Allegany and Washington counties. If you are interesed in creating 10 or more acres of young forest habitat, we would like to hear from you.
Early successional forest management creates habitat that many species of animals and plants require. The Golden-Winged Warbler and Cerulean Warbler are migratory songbirds that require a forest disturbance to create thte habitat they rely on. This is typically achieved through timber harvesting, so if you are thinking about harvesting timber and would like to improve the habitat for wildlife species during the process, please contact us.
To learn more about this unique opportunity your can contact Private Lands Forester Shannon Farrell at 240-609-3505 or by email at: shannon.Farrell@md.nacdnet.net
