Forest Management Services for Land & Habitat Stewardship
Proper forest management is vital for Michigan’s natural and economic health. At nearly 20 million acres, forests comprise 54% of the state’s total land area.
These ecosystems are home to diverse plant and animal species, they support Michigan’s air and water quality, and they provide a space for outdoor recreation.
Just as important to our economy, forests create thousands of jobs. This is why, at Thickets Habitat & Land Works, we serve commercial and residential land owners in stewarding the health of their habitats.

Habitat Management Services for Commercial Landowners
As a commercial landowner, you play a pivotal role in the stewardship of Michigan’s forests. Our habitat management services empower you to actively contribute to the conservation of local ecosystems.
Even better, our services offer a range of benefits, including improved safety, compliance with regulations, enhanced aesthetics, and increased property value.
Additionally, they contribute to the overall functionality and productivity of the commercial property, ensuring a conducive environment for business operations. Here are some of the commercial forestry management services that we provide:
Regular maintenance ensures that your commercial property maintains a neat and professional appearance. This instills a positive impression on clients, customers, and visitors. Additionally, well-maintained grounds are safer for employees and visitors, reducing the risk of accidents due to overgrown vegetation or hazardous conditions. Finally, a well-maintained property ensures compliance with local regulations and zoning requirements. This improves your profitability by avoiding potential fines or legal issues.
Clearing your site of vegetation and debris prepares it for construction or development projects, enabling efficient and timely progress. Furthermore, by clearing lots, fields, and pastures, you’ll maximize the usable area of your property. In addition to increasing its value, this maximizes the revenue-generating potential of your land.
Clearing your survey lines ensures that property boundaries are clearly defined and easily identifiable. This reduces the risk of boundary disputes with neighboring properties.
Regular maintenance of right-of-ways ensures that utility lines remain clear and accessible. This minimizes the risk of service disruptions for commercial operations. Moreover, this practice supports compliance and safety. Maintenance ensures compliance with regulations and promotes safety by reducing the risk of vegetation-related incidents.
By strategically reducing flammable vegetation, you’ll lower the risk of wildfires significantly. Doing so is vital for protecting your property, your assets, and the neighboring areas. Furthermore, depending on your provider, implementing fire fuel reduction measures may lead to lower insurance premiums.
Habitat Management Services for Homeowners
For homeowners with wooded properties, our services are designed to enhance the beauty, safety, and ecological integrity of your space.
They contribute to your overall well-being and satisfaction, and enable you to enjoy and appreciate your property fully.
Here are some of the residential forest management services that we provide:
Clearing or improving view corridors enables you and your family to enjoy picturesque vistas. Furthermore, a well-maintained view corridor enhances the visual appeal of a property significantly. This enhances the overall living experience and connection with nature through a tranquil and visually appealing environment.
A property with exceptional curb appeal is more inviting and leaves a positive first impression on visitors, potential buyers, and passersby. In turn, well-maintained properties tend to boast higher market values. A visually appealing property is more marketable and tends to attract more interest from potential buyers. This is vital for a faster and more profitable sale, providing a higher return on investment in less time.
Prompt storm damage clearance ensures that any hazards or obstructions are quickly addressed. Additionally, the timely removal of storm-damaged vegetation prevents further harm to your property and surrounding areas. This reduces the risk of accidents, potential liability issues, and further loss of value.
Properly managed vegetation ensures that plants and trees thrive, which promotes the overall health and vitality of your landscape. Importantly, regular vegetation management identifies and addresses potential pest or disease issues early, preventing widespread infestations. Finally, strategic pruning and trimming enhances airflow and sunlight penetration. This further benefits the overall health of your vegetation.
Invasive species can be aggressive and may cause damage to property structures. By removing invasive vegetation, you’ll protect native plants and trees from competition. This is vital for preserving the natural balance and biodiversity of the local ecosystem.
