Wooded areas in and around our communities can prevent soil erosion, cleanse the air, buffer noise, counter the heat-absorbing effects of buildings and pavement and offer the kind of recreational opportunities that new industries and savvy home buyers look for in selecting a new location. They also provide a home for wildlife and can be a lifesaver for migrating birds. This bulletin helps you determine where your community´s natural areas are, shows you how to conduct an inventory of the area, and lists six basic management needs to maintain these nature areas.
