Timber stand improvement will improve the growth and species composition of your forest. Central Illinois Forestry will thin the junk trees in order to promote the growth or regeneration of desirable species and check the growth of weedy invaders. A key part of most forestry success stories is a commitment to timber stand improvement.
Central Illinois Forestry can complete the entire job, mark the trees for you to remove yourself, or let you complete the entire job. We can do a heavy timber stand improvement or just a light touch-up. Any little bit helps.
Central Illinois Forestry can help you apply for cost-share incentives available to complete this practice.
