This article shows that cutover stands of Douglasfir in the Southwest are not restocking satisfactorily because of the destructive work of mice. Since it has heen found that mice can be effectively controlled by poisoning, the author suggests that cutover areas be poisoned in years when good seed crops occur. He also suggests that for remaining uncut virgin stands light cutting and as complete disposal of slash and cull material as possible may be all that is required to control rodents.
