Description: Abstract After experimental harvests on 18 mature pine-hardwood stands in 6 replicated groups, flying squirrels changed from uniform pre-harvest patterns of nest box use to concentrating on protected greenbelt (GB) areas on harvested stands. Squirrel densities declined on all harvested stands as densities increased on three control stands. Fifty squirrels tracked by radiotelemetry on three control and two harvested stands over three years selected mature pine-hardwood, GB, and hardwood forest habitats for foraging around control study areas; they foraged in GB and adjacent hardwood forests around harvested stands. With boxes closed, squirrels nested in mature pine-hardwood forest on control study areas and GB habitat on harvested stands. Males showed vagility around control areas where mast production was low; female and male ranges were similar, and smaller, around harvested areas where hard mast resources were more abundant.
