Aspen & Tag Alder Shearing

An efficient way to refresh a large alder stand is to employ our tracked vehicle with a high-speed rotating head that chews the shrubs down. (It’s important to do such work in winter when the ground is frozen to avoid damaging the shrubs’ roots, digging deep ruts in the soil, and bogging down equipment.) Aspen and tag alder shearing and cutting can be designed in different patterns. One option is to cut a series of long strips along stream corridors, chewing down around 25 percent of the alder in the stand every five years. Another strategy is to cut individual patches within sprawling shrub swamps, also cutting about 25 percent of the alder every five year. We can connect you with WYFP to explore funding options to cover some costs of the shearing. Learn More at: Wisconsin Young Forest Program!
