Description: An extensive literature'points to wild mammals as agents that may seriously reduce the productive capacity of forests and in many ways, interfere with efforts to grow valuable trees. While the loss of forest values is not a new problem, it has been brought into sharper focus through better identification of the various kinds of mammal-caused injuries and by improved survey, techniques. These latter actions have been spurred by the high values now attached to forest products I consequent emphasis on early regeneration of timber stands.
