Wildlife Habitat Improvement

A number of wildlife habitat improvement practices can be implemented to improve the mix of habitat across your property.


White-tailed deer sprint across property under forest management
Wildlife clearings
, especially on heavily forested properties, improve the mix of habitat to attract deer, turkey, and a number of other species.


"Edge-feathering" can create abundant small game habitat along field edges.


Timber stand improvement and sustainable timber harvesting increase both food sources and cover sources for a number of game and non-game species.


Central Illinois Forestry can help you apply for cost-share incentives available to complete this practice.
