Ravenna Woods Forest Management Plan


The Ravenna Woods landscape would benefit from a program of forest management that focuses on controlling exotic invasive species and replanting native canopy trees. The site is currently dominated by blackberry in the south end and English ivy in the north end. The tree canopy in the south end is sparse. The tree canopy in the north end is predominantly bigleaf maple. Approximately one quarter of the trees on the site should be removed or severely pruned to minimize hazard potential. This will further necessitate new plantings of trees to provide the next generation of canopy trees.
