to nest, feed, or seek shelter. If they
don't pose a hazard, leave snags
standing.
Provide Artificial Shelters or
Food Sources
While your agroforestry planting
develops into quality habitat, erect
special houses and feeders to
attract bluebirds, purple martins,
bats, bees, or toads.

Have Fun with the Border
An unmowed grassy area
alongside Working Trees provides
spring nesting areas and a fall
seed supply. Irregular borders and
curves are aesthetically pleasing
and provide room to add clumps
of berry-producing shrubs that will
attract all types of wildlife.
Supply Rocks & Stone Piles
Large flat rocks offer a place
for lizards, butterflies, chipmunks,
snakes, and skinks to bask in the
sun, which they need to do to
regulate body temperature.
Identify " Host " Plants
Some animals are dependent on
a specific plant. Incorporate host
vegetation into your Working Trees
planting.
Provide Perches
Eagles, hawks, and other raptors
like to perch on high branches from
which they can spot prey. Erect
poles to provide perches until trees
A
are established.

Leave Woody Debris
Limbs, root wads, and whole
trees in streams supply food for
critters at the bottom of the food
chain and create a place for small
fish to hide.

BENEFITS FOR WILDLIFE
From seed to dirt, trees are an important element of the landscape
for wildlife. A tree's life cycle moves from seed to seedling to tree to
snag to decaying to dirt. Along the pathway, wildlife and other plants are
depending on the tree.
Living Trees
Trees support the lives of many large organisms. Trees are used for
food, shelter, and sites for reproduction. Many animals also use trees for
resting, nesting and for places from which to hunt or capture prey. 
When the trees mature, animals are able to enjoy delicious fruits and
foraging opportunities. During times of extreme heat or precipitation,
animals can seek shade and shelter under the trees without being away
from their food source.
