Kelsey - New York State RegionalCoriservation Educator ; - Reforestation for Wildlife. There are many farms across New York state' which have seen more -productive days^Some of these long 'sihce have returned, either naturally or by reforestation, to what they can produce best — timber. However, there are still many which are growing goldenrod, raspberries and summac, and the new owners aren’t the least bit inter­ ested .in making an eco- - nomieally productiveagri- cultural operation out of their holding. Their prime , interest' is • in having a retreat from the tensions of the hectic work-a-day world.’ As ‘ they wander over their .holdings to relax, they begin to see little management that should not-be overlooked is that wildlife likes edger= that is, the area of change between one type of cdver and another. Wildlife ani­ mus don't like to travel very far from an edge, so a, large plantation with trees of the sarne age and species may show very little wildlife use in its center. > . The'edge axiom can be applied to reforestation in two ways: First, by planting strips of different species, and second, by, staggering the planting over several years. Since most from-4iis time-and- thei financial .investment .in of a plantation for wildlife things that, can be done to increase the fuft that th 6 y wUl have h ilher^te% f or -many, this in^v|| ^ Ih g things which t^;inicreas 6 the ainoipbof wildlifethat. is' available for recrea­ tional purposes. This., of course, means both for. hunting and for* just plain watching. ' \Once this possibility enters a new owners, mind, one of the first things that he thinks of is planting conifers. More often than not, planting can- be very productive of new wildlife'habitat on an unused farm. To gejt the . such a venture, it should be properly planned as a long range project, for there are many ways that, such work could result in reduced wildlife over the years if done improperly. - One axiom of wildlife are probably its first 20 , the longer the planting program is extended, the longer there will be plots at the maximum potential age. ~ Better than starting planting at One side of the . I. !-l .r, I. \ property and\ moving 16-' Ward the other side is to -plant-a small acreage in one part the first year and move to another section the next; In this way you get .protective cover spots scattered around the farm.' In a rotation .like this, the first planting will be several years old before another planting is made in the same area. By that time the two planta­ tions, though side by side, will have an edge between them, . iw .... The most heavily usect- plantations) I have seen reones/fcnat were made u p o f species of trees planted in strips of 10 to 20 rows each. The very best of these included black lo­ cust, a tree whose .direct benefits’, to .wildlife are limited; but as a leguine is valuable-in fixing nitrogen in the soil so that it can be used by other jplaiits. TEST understory of a locust plantation is much more - lush than that of the surrounding territory. Wildlife feeding patterns in -the -area show a grow’ in deiise spruce shade. Larch 'is .at the other extreme, letting a great deal of light through ^ \even-duriDg the growing season When it has its needled. Its understory preference for this more nutritious food. There is. one drawback to strip planting, jhowever , thaf landowners' should consider. Strip plantings are less efficient from a forest management stand­ point.

When properly thinned, how­ ever, hardwoods and suitable for your needs. • Different types d'f Coni­ fers give different results. Spruce produce the'dens­ est cover, offering the most protection from wind, weather and predr ators.

Skiers compete Saturday The best' downhill ski ‘ racers m the east com­ peted in the annual Gov­ ernor’s cup race held on the fast downhill course on Whiteface mountain, take Placid, Saturday, January 3L The course was in great shape and extremely fast. Many of the competitors attained top speeds of nearly 75 Tn.p:hras~theyshot down .the 1.4 mile course with average times of 50 m.p.h. One of Willard’s top downhiller's, Jim. Plunk­ ett, took a second in the first run but was upended in the second and was unable to finish. Another top downhiller from Wil­ lard, Ken LanSr 'unfor­ tunately drew the number one starting position, in both races. The number one starting position is a big disadvantage „.a§ the track is not ’patted and , much slower tfaniriater on in the race. Even so, he was able to take a tenth in the first race. Jean Idleman, tie only girl from Willard com­ peting; had two very sound runs and placed 15th and 8 th. This was probably Jean’s strongest downhill race of her career, and was the best, showing of any of the girls representing, New York state.
