Northern Long-eared Bat

Hibernacula and Maternity Roost Tree Location Information

The northern long-eared bat 4(d) rule prohibits incidental take that may occur from tree removal activities within 150 feet of a known occupied maternity roost tree during the pup season (June 1 to July 31) or within a 1/4 mile of a hibernation site, year round. 

 

Location information for hibernacula and maternity roost trees is generally kept in state Natural Heritage Inventory databases – the availability of this data varies state-by-state.  Links to state online Natural Heritage Programs and links to U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Field Offices are provided below.

 

We do not require private landowners to conduct surveys on their lands.  However, surveys can reduce uncertainties and facilitate project planning.  Recommended survey methods are available
