Publication Series: General Technical Report (GTR)

Description: This book examines the potential of Silvicultural approaches for managing animal damage in forests at two levels: management of free-to-grow stands and sitespecific practices that foster prompt and successful regeneration. Introductory chapters provide a historical perspective of animal damage management in the Pacific Northwest, describe the elements of an integrated approach to forest protection, review the principles of vegetation management and wildlife management, and examine the influence of Silvicultural practices on habitat and animal damage. Individual chapters are devoted to the ecology and control measures appropriate to problem species of wildlife and livestock that damage forest stands. Coverage includes the influence of Silvicultural practices on habitat, populations, and damage. The book focuses on the potential of Silvicultural practices to limit animal damage, but it also includes information on chemical repellents, mechanical barriers, and direct control measures. Other chapters deal with the development of integrated Silvicultural prescriptions, including modeling systems, to limit animal damage. A concluding chapter discusses social, political, legal, and ethical aspects of animal damage.

Keywords: animal damage management, integrated forest protection, wildlife problem species, livestock grazing, modeling, silviculture, Pacific Northwest
