Baudette Shearing


Description


The site contains old decadent willow that would provide better brush land habitat if it was sheared. Shearing would reduce plant height, stimulate new plant growth and enable the site to be burned. Burning will further increase nutrient cycling and keep the site in an early successional growth phase. This growth phase is selected by sharptail grouse, short eared owls, sandhill cranes, and whitetail deer.
