for shrub plantings. Shrub plantings planted in rows can provide corridors and travel lanes for wildlife where habitats are fragmented and discontinuous. Clump plantings of shrubs provide areas of dense cover and add diversity to our landscape. Shrubs may be planted in the understory of existing woodlots to provide wildlife food and low growing.

This book was developed by the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service as an aid in identifying trees and shrubs and to aid in their use for conservation purposes. Many of the trees and shrubs are growing at or near one of more of the plant materials centers operated by the Natural Resources Conservation Service nationwide.

A guide to Conservation Plantings on Critical Areas for the Northeast This guide covers some factors to consider when planning and implementing critical area seedings and conservation plantings.

It discusses the differences between critical area stabilization, conservation plantings and restoration with an emphasis on critical area stabilization. Wildlife Plantings Woody cover plantings designed specifically for wildlife share most of the same characteristics as farmstead shelterbelts.

Although the same com­ binations of shrubs and trees are used, they are planted in large blocks or arranged to conform to the terrain rather than the traditional L-shape of shelterbelts (Fig. Author: Paul R. Salon, Chris Miller, USDA NRCS Plant Materials Program Created Date: 05/01/ Title: A Guide to Conservation Plantings on Critical Areas for the Northeast.

As a general rule, only light pruning is recommended for shrub wildlife plantings because there is a danger of pruning away future food supplies if done at the wrong time of year.

Pruning also reduces the plants usefulness as wildlife shelter; backyard wildlife shrubs should be allowed to attain a natural form. Add these easy-growing native plants to your garden for lots of low-maintenance color through the seasons. This easy-to-grow, easy-to-love plant thrives in moist soils rich in organic matter.

Woody shrubs and climbers provide food, shelter and breeding places for our wildlife. Nesting birds and hibernating insects make their homes in them, predators seek out insects and other invertebrates to eat, and insects like butterflies use them as natural wind also provide areas of shade and cover, allowing animals to move around safely, and they boost the variety of habitats in.

This plant category attracts wildlife that we visually enjoy, such as butterflies and hummingbirds. Planting and growing fruiting shrubs, such as blueberries, elderberries, and viburnums, will allow you the pleasure of observing birds as they feed, especially songbirds. Evergreen and dense shrubs provide cover for many of earth's creatures.

Native vegetation is a perfect cover for terrestrial wildlife. Shrubs, thickets, and brush piles provide great hiding places within their bushy leaves and thorns. Even dead trees work, as they are home to lots of different animals, including some that use tree cavities and branches for nesting and perching.

The techniques to conserve soil are very simple and require implementation so as to reduce the dire environmental impacts.

Some of the categories and ways to conserve the soil include: 1. Agricultural Soil Conservation. Agricultural soil conservation involves the practices that can be used by farmers to promote the health and quality of soils.

Gradually, shrubs planted close together will interweave to form a dense barrier, helping to promote soil conservation, inhibit flooding, reduce snow drifting, and sustain wildlife.

NRCS - Critical Areas   Collectively, these species cover all the ranges of soil moistures. American Cranberrybush (V. trilobum) and Wild Raisin (V. cassinoides) grow in wet areas (the former preferring moist woods and bogs, while the latter prefers shrub swamps and forested wetlands), making them fine choices for wetland mitigation plantings.

Both grow in full to. Critical to a successful wildlife planting is a well-developed plan to guide your decision-making and action. Whether your aim is to establish permanent food plots, increase protective cover, protect riparian zones or grow trees and shrubs for other reasons to benefit wildlife, the best plantings start with a detailed plan.Get this book in print.
