Description: The relations between arboreal rodents and trees causes the animals to be particularly sensitive to the effects of timber harvesting.Among arboreal rodents,we consider the redtree vole to be the most vulnerable to local extinctions resulting from the loss or fragmentation of old-growth Douglas-fir forests. Redtree voles are nocturnal,canopy dwelling, and difficult to study. The following habitat characteristics are potentially important for this species: tree species, stand development,tree size, moisture conditions, topographic positions, elevation, and stand size. Based on these characteristics, we developed interim management strategies to help sustain or expand existing populations of red tree voles.

Keywords: Arboreal rodents, red tree vole, Douglas-fir, fragmentation, management
