We have been working to improve timber and savanna habitat on core areas with high restoration potential since 2006. Most restoration requires heavy brush management – that translates to a lot of chainsaw operation! However, after brush management and prescribed burns we remain vigilant to manage against thistles, honey suckle, and multiflora rose to prevent a second invasion of invasive species. Matt, LeeRoy, Eric, and Gary are dedicated workers and deserve kudos for the amount of work they have accomplished.
We would like to thank Guthrie County Community Foundation for a grant that allowed us to purchase new chainsaws and the NRCS for brush management funding.
