DescriptionIntensive culture of Populus will affect nongame bird habitat. Conversion of old fields to Populus plantations will destroy habitat favorable to certain species and produce habitat that will attract different species. Effects of this conversion can be lessened by planting plantations with irregular shapes and by leaving patches (.4 hectares) of existing vegetation when plantation size exceeds 60 hectares.
