If you would like to add a permanent food plot or create an opening where there are currently trees growing, contact a customer service representative (855-RAY-HUNT) to discuss the program specifics. . Clubs can install food plots "Free of Charge" in certain areas that do not interfere with normal tree production but they could potentially be destroyed during normal silviculture and fire suppression activities.
