Wildlife Habitat Creation

Dead or dying trees may be retained to create wildlife habitat instead of removing the tree. Especially popular in rural areas, Ironwood Urban Forestry Consulting works with clients to help in determining adequate trees for retention as wildlife habitat.

Our climbing arborists are able to create wildlife habitat snags from your dead or dying trees. 

A combination of tree risk assessment, local wildlife and nesting patterns, and tree pruning techniques is cruicial in the creation of wildlife habitat snags. Contact us today for a consultation about your trees using the Contact Us page.
