  • Have you had any conversations or support from foresters or wildlife biologists? What type of support did they provide?Forest management = thinning, clearing, logging, tree marking, planting, stand improvement Forest management plan = development of a more formalized plan Applications = meeting requirements for programs/ applying to programs
  • Who did those supporting you work for?DEC affiliates were mostly foresters (13). There was (1) “other” DEC affiliate and (3) that were ambiguous in the interview. In the codes, there was no mention of DEC wildlife supportGenerally, there was not too much mention of wildlife-specific support with regard to who provided it.

  • What could a management agency do to make it easier or more desirable for you to do ESH management in the future? Help finding a foresterKnowledgeable professionalsLearning about programs
  • Definition of ESH% of total Old field, transitioning fieldExperts more likely to define viaEcological successional principles Specific habitat typesLandowners define by…Vegetation“Old fields”Do these different understandings potentially lead to different outcomes?
  • Experts……3 creation techniques (less letting nature take its course)Landowners…..emphasizing letting nature take its course (some active management)
