Figure 8 Peloquin Wildlife Openings


This project is designed to enhance existing wildlife openings, created 25 years ago, to maintain early successional forest habitat in the form of grasses, forbs, fruiting shrubs and scattered clumps of young aspen, hazel, alder and willow stems in a landscape where surrounding timber stands are approaching middle age, providing a diversity of forest age classes. These early successional openings provide habitat for deer, woodcock, ruffed grouse, bear, and golden winged warblers. These openings are located within large blocks of public forest land and most are in remote areas. Each site is unique with different densities of brush, trees and site topography.
