Old Field Reclamation

Early-succession habitats, such as grasslands & shrublands have been declining throughout the Northeast as have the wildlife species associated with them.  Most of the current woodlands in New England were once cleared & used as farmland.  Stone walls still remain in our woods & fields but may not be visible due to changes in our land use.  Resurrecting those fields can be environmentally advantageous by providing essential habitat for songbirds, field mammals and beneficial insect species, as well as opening up views & vistas across your land.
