MLT Wildlife Habitat Walk July 25th In 2018 and 2019 Mattapoisett Land Trust hired professional foresters Phil Benjamin and Tom Farrell to create Forest Management Plans (FMPs) for 360 acres of woods in our Old Aucoot and Brandt Island Cove Districts. To improve habitat for wildlife, particularly birds, the foresters recommend selective thinning and limited tree harvest in certain forest areas to create more varied sizes and ages of trees, areas of additional sunlight, and to control invasive species.
Later this summer woodcutting will begin on 90 acres south of Route 6 in MLT’s Old Aucoot District. To learn more about this work, please join us for a talk and walk with forester Phil Benjamin on Thursday, July 25th at 5:00 p.m. starting at the Friends Meeting House parking area on Rt. 6. Please dress for the weather and wear long pants and closed shoes. For more information, contact MLT at or call 774-377-9191.
