Brush Chaining to Improve Elk Habitat

Quoting the makers of this video, “We head to Eastern Kentucky to observe a new habitat management technique called “Brush Chaining” to help rid the land of the invasive Autumn Olive. In turn, this will help Kentucky’s elk population thrive.”


Chaining has been done in Texas for years. Short term results are good, however, what you see before chaining are symptoms: The cause is removal of animal impact. Unless animals and animal impact are returned, these areas will return to the pre-chained state in a few years.
