oh, for pete's sake...yes, ANY wooded area will provide better and more diversified habitat than farmland, unless the species involved prefer open fields to begin with. restoring the original biodiversity that existed prior to their use for farming is the better answer, though. birds and insects particularly often require highly specialized environments that cannot be satisfied with a lookalike substitute...and a "good enough" solution pleasing to humans can impede feeding, habitat usage, and reproduction.
