I was looking for more information on maintaining pollinator corridors and types of flowering plants that are desirable for native pollinators in northern Wisconsin. I work for a large National Forest and we maintain an old power corridor by mowing and some prescribed burning. Mowing is on cycle of every 4 years. The corridors are home to many native plants, aster, golden rods, milkweeds blackberries raspberries just to name a few. I would like to know how to best manage the corridors for pollinators. At this time I have been leaving large patches of the above mentioned plants un-mowed. I mow on the average 65 acres a year. We are looking for partnerships in maintaining the areas. In addition we have many small woodland openings to maintain which vary in size from 1 acre to 5 or 6 acres.
