Event Details

Creating Wildlife Habitat Trees

Date: February 28, 2018
Location: Surrey Nature Centre, Surrey, BC, CANADA
Organizer: Pacific Northwest Chapter of ISA
Sponsor: Pacific Northwest Chapter of ISA
Description: Class participants will have the opportunity to learn best practices regarding the safe retention of tree portions for habitat. Techniques like Coronet Pruning will be demonstrated. In addition, participants will learn how to create bird boxes using pre-existing cavities. Saws can also be utilized to create habitat; we’ll explore how to attract desired animals by specifying the size and location of wood holes.

As arborists, it is our job to evaluate trees and offer solutions to mitigate risks. Frequently, wildlife habitat exists in known tree risks (i.e., cavities, dead snags, or broken tops). In many cases, risks can be reduced and mitigated while retaining existing wildlife habitat or creating new wildlife habitat.

Not all trees need to be used as habitat trees, but in the right place they can make a substantial, positive difference to the community. Knowing regulatory laws and protected species is the arborist’s responsibility. The people taking care of trees must realize the value in preserving and creating habitats, so we can live more symbiotically in the world.

Brian French founded Portland-based Arboriculture International LLC in 2013. He is a climbing ISA Certified Arborist and Qualified Tree Risk Assessor. Serving as coordinator for the Oregon Champion Tree Registry and the Chair of the Portland Heritage Tree Program, he focuses on the preservation of significant, old trees and their associated flora and fauna. As an Audubon Society of Portland volunteer, Brian facilitated various ongoing wildlife habitat projects including salmon habitat restoration, snag development, red tree vole surveys, and developing urban wildlife guidelines.
