Volunteer Tree and Brush removal on Kandiyohi County WMAs


The project on these four sites will include contracting to have as many of the small trees and brush cut and removed from the proposed sites as possible on these WMA's to start opening up the grassland areas. Current plans are to consider the use of the Bio-baler for the small tree and brush removal. This will be followed by contracting to have the larger trees cut down and piled up for burning. The stumps will be treated with Pathfinder or a similar chemical when necessary to further open up the grassland areas. The DNR Approved this project.
