NATURES APARTMENT COMPLEXES

Posted on Apr 11, 2019

If a tree dies in your yard and no one is around to make it fall, does it make a sound?  Yes!  The sound of chicks peeping, birds singing, animals scurrying.

Most people know exactly what a snag is, even if don’t know it by that name. A snag is simply a standing dead or partially-dead tree. While some people may view them as hazardous or untidy, snags are actually quite important to wildlife. Many animals make their homes in or on snags, including birds, bats, small mammals, snakes, and invertebrates. Snags are extremely important structural elements for wildlife, and may make up the entire habitat of some creatures, like insects. They quickly become favored nesting spots for birds, preferred perches for raptors. There is always something happening at the snags.

Skeptical a snag can look good?
