wildlife management plans southern illinois

Wildlife & Habitat Management Plans

Wildlife management plans are guides that show how, when, and where you should implement habitat improvement practices. Creating a management plan for farmland, river bottom ground, or wooded timber is a smart investment Having a carefully developed plan helps provide you with objectives and goals, resource inventory, site-specific recommendations as well as a specific schedule to follow.

Forestry & Timber Stand Improvement

The purpose of TSI, also known as timber stand improvement, is to free any desirable trees from the competition and to remove the trees that are poorer in quality. This helps improve the overall condition of the stand and helps concentrate growth onto the trees you have selected. TSI can also help improve wildlife food and habitat as well as the appearance and health of a woodlot. TSI increases hard mast production and increases ground layer vegetation, which then increases browse options and cover for all of the wildlife.

food plots southern illinois

Food Plot Design, Creation & Maintenance

Creating and maintaining food plots can help provide supplemental food as well as nutrition for wildlife. However, food plots should never be considered substitutes for managing the native vegetation to provide a quality food source. In addition, to create supplemental nutrition for the wildlife during stress periods, food plots also can be created to improve hunting or viewing opportunities, as well as to alter deer movement patterns.
