How Land Management Helps With Soil Management
Land management is the process of managing the use and development of land resources for a variety of purposes. Soil management is the use of operations, practices, and treatments that protect and enhance the soil. How you handle the management of your land directly affects your soil quality.
According to the USDA, “Research shows that management practices and disturbances impact soil biological functions because they can 1) enhance or degrade the microbial habitat, 2) add to or remove food resources, or 3) directly add or kill soil organisms.”
Managing soil well is crucial for reducing sediment loss and keeping valuable fertilizer and pesticides in the field, which increases yields in farm and food plots. The organic matter content and soil structure must be controlled to accomplish this.
Managing your land well and protecting the soil will help to:
- save money
- increase crop yields
- avoid causing pollution and localized flooding
- protect local habitats and species
- reduce the impacts of climate change and extreme weather events
At Tallgrass, while we perform any number of one-time services we really look at land in terms of its long-term care and maintenance. That is why we also talk to you about our annual programs that may also be of interest to you when we come and give you an estimate for service.
There is no pressure to sign up for an annual program, but as your forestry expert, we want to give you all of the options, be that a one-time service solution or annual land management programs that might make sense for your property.
Annual Programs may include but are not limited to:
- Spraying the land for weeds in Spring and Fall
- Spraying solutions vary based on the individual property
- Brush Hogging 2 to 3 times a year ( Spring / Summer / Fall )
- Seeding as needed
- Every property is unique so other solutions may be suggested
Every piece of property is unique which is why our owner, Bryan Ballard, will give you a free estimate that is customized for your property.
