Are there similarities between the northern long-eared bat and the endangered Indiana bat.
Manage a 5-mile radius around each hibernaculum. This requires a no tree removal zone within a 1-mile radius and managed (restricted tree removal based on TSI/Harvest plan with bat consideration) Indiana bat habitat within a 4-mile radius beyond the 1-mile no tree removal zone.

Seasonal restriction on tree cutting: Only cut trees when Indiana bats are hibernating or concentrated near their hibernacula. For project areas affecting Indiana bat swarming habitat (near hibernacula), only cut trees between November 15 and March For project areas affecting Indiana bat summer habitat, only cut trees between October 15 and March.
If you missed the winter tree clearing season of October 1 through March 31 and waiting six months for the next tree clearing window is not an option, a summer bat survey may be the solution. If your site meets various requirements, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) and Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) may grant you permission to conduct a summer survey for Indiana and northern long-eared bats.
In areas of the bat’s range that may be affected by white-nose syndrome, we believe incidental take caused by some tree removal and tree-clearing activities, when combined with conservation measures that protect the bat’s most vulnerable life stages, does not need to be prohibited to conserve the northern long-eared bat. restrictions (See Page 2). Projects within ¼ mile of a known hibernacula. There are known hibernacula (bat caves), pruning orange trees in texas NH.
