EDGEFIELD, S.C. -(Ammoland.com)- Beginning the week of August 28, The National Wild Turkey Federation will air the first episode of a two-part series, titled “Tennessee’s Private Forests,” on “Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt.” to demonstrate how natural resources professionals and local agencies and associations, such as the Tennessee Tree Farm Committee, can help private landowners sustainably manage their forestland in way that meet landowners’ diverse objectives.

The first episode highlights the importance of active forest management and the associated economic, social and environmental benefits; the critical role of private forestlands from a forest health and wildlife habitat perspective; resources available to assist private landowners including natural resource professionals and state/local agencies and associations; and the role of partners like NWTF.

The second episode, scheduled to air the first week of September, highlights the 2015 Tennessee Tree Farmer of the Year, John Burch.

Burch, as well as the dedicated team of trained foresters and wildlife biologists who work with him, describe the impact of active forest management towards improving wildlife habitat and restoring forest health.

Burch shares his family’s proud legacy of ownership, his inspiring personal story and new-found appreciation for the benefits of active forest management – as it relates to improving wildlife habitat for future generations.

About the National Wild Turkey Federation:

When the National Wild Turkey Federation was founded in 1973, there were about 1.5 million wild turkeys in North America. After decades of work, that number hit a historic high of almost 7 million turkeys. To succeed, the NWTF stood behind science-based conservation and hunters’ rights. Today, the NWTF is focused on the future of hunting and conservation through its Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. initiative – a charge that mobilizes science, fundraising and devoted volunteers to conserve or enhance more than 4 million acres of essential wildlife habitat, recruit at least 1.5 million hunters and open access to 500,000 acres for hunting.
