Forest Stand Improvement

Dove Creek Forestry works with state foresters and homeowners to achieve forest treatment goals that improve the overall health of the forest. After treatments, remaining trees and vegetation can grow stronger with a greater capacity to withstand stress and the forest becomes less susceptible to catastrophic fire, disease and beetle infestation. Valuable components we apply in creating and maintaining a healthy forest include:

Forming appropriate tree spacing

Removing dead trees

Removing compromised trees susceptible to pine beetle and disease

Clearing dense understory

Retaining species diversity
