Burnt Butcher Stewardship Project

The NWTF collaborated with the USDA Forest Service to carry out restoration efforts on Finger Lakes National Forest in Burdett, New York.

The Burnt Butcher stewardship project provides for the improvement of forest health, restoration of native forests and improvement of wildlife habitat across approximately 800 acres of the Finger Lakes National Forest.

Crews conducted timber harvests, cutting and thinning approximately 260 acres. They also planted trees to benefit wild turkeys and a variety of other game and non-game species such as American woodcock, white-tailed deer, eastern towhee, chestnut-sided warbler and the common yellow throat.
