One of the key components in managing a forest is increasing wildlife habitat.
This is why we strive to create habitat that will increase the carrying capacity of each tract of land that we assist in managing the forest. Timber harvesting is a great way to create change and edge. All wildlife species throughout the southeast United States strives when there is change and edge in the landscape. Whether it is planted pines for protection from weather and providing songbird nesting to hardwood cut-overs that create browse and security for the white-tail deer. At Piedmont we are able to offer many different levels of wildlife management from establishing food plots to assisting in creating vegetative corridors for the wildlife to flourish.
Piedmont Timber is responsible for adhering to any local, state, and federal laws pertaining to our operations: including following the Best Management Practices (BMPs) as adopted by the NC General Assembly. This includes stream buffers and erosion control barriers.
