Description

In winter of 2013, 65 forested acres of Tuckaway Farm in New Hampshire were cleared or thinned. The clearing was in areas of moist soil along streams to create habitat for the New England cottontail rabbit (Sylvilagus transitionalis) which has become rare as the eastern cottontail (Sylvilagus floridanus) has been introduced into its range. Native shrubs will be planted and encouraged in these areas. The thinning was to remove about 30% of the forest canopy to allow forage plants to grow among the trees. Grasses and clover will be seeded and eventually livestock will graze these areas.

Aerial photos were taken with a dual camera visible/near-infrared KAP rig lofted by a Fled kite.
