Habitat conservation

Habitat conservation is a management practice that seeks to conserve, protect and restore habitats and prevent species extinction, fragmentation or reduction in range.[1] It is a priority of many groups that cannot be easily characterized in terms of any one ideology.

Tree planting is an aspect of habitat conservation. In each plastic tube a hardwood tree has been planted.
There are significant ecological benefits associated with selective cutting. Pictured is an area with Ponderosa Pine trees that were selectively harvested.
