Trees and shrubs selected will provide fruits, nuts, seeds, foliage and insects as food for wildlife.

Seed stock shall be OECD certified or US grown seed stock OECD or other accepted agency certified. The trees planted must have both a high Wildlife and Economic value for the region.

The properly designed wildlife plantings will improve the habitat for many native wildlife species. By planting a high diversity of species the new forest will satisfy the different nesting and perching height requirements of various bird species, thereby attracting a greater diversity of wildlife to the planting. Wildlife will have a greater attraction to the planting because the rows of the new forest are spiraled outward from the center of the flower.

Trees and shrubs selected will provide fruits, nuts, seeds, foliage and insects as food for wildlife. As wildlife must move about to find food, water, and escape predators we will plant travel corridors or shelterbands between the five petals of the forest.

In addition to providing good soil erosion control and augmenting existing wildlife habitat opportunities will exist for pine nut harvest, Maple syrup production and specialty wood products as the forest matures and other forests are planted from collected seed stocks.

Rooting techniques developed in Canada by Dr. Holger Brix, will be used to propagate woody cuttings from mature trees. Once propagated miniature seed orchards will be grown from existing mature stocks. By controlling pollination in these miniature orchards a more vigorous seed stock can easily be produced for future forest generations.

Shelterbelts
Due to extreme erosion conditions that have resulted from the clear cutting of the native forests, the planting of shelterbelts of Siberian pea tree (Caragana arboescens), Siberian larch, (Larix sibirica) and Green ash (Fraxinus pennsylvanica) will be planted in locations that will provide the most benefit for the area. They may be planted as wildlife corridors and along river banks where plantings of the villosa lilac (Syringa villosa) will be established to reduce river bank erosion.
