Ramsey Mill Pond Oak Forest


This proposal is about removing invasive, exotic shrubs and small trees, especially targeting buckthorns and honeysuckles within a 30 acre section of oak forest, savannah and woodlands along the Red Cedar River at the Ramsey Mill Pond State Wildlife Area. The project site is a bluff overlooking the river located in the highest use portion of the Wildlife Area. The project will serve as a forest and savanna management demonstration site, will remove exotic species from an area they are most likely to be encountered by visitors to the area and enhance the habitat value of the wildlife area.
