MSGS - Littlefork WMA Brush Mgmt


This project will roller chop (perhaps hydroaxe) approximately 46 acres of new woody growth (primarily aspen, balsam poplar and ash) that has become decadent and needs to be set back to retain the open landscape aspect of this WMA, primarily to benefit sharp-tailed grouse. Adjacent parcels have been cut or hydroaced previously, so this will add to available habitat.
