Some Lessons from Europe in Forest-Big Game Management
Abstract:Damage to forests by big game on overstocked ranges is a chronic problem in many areas throughout the United States. Pending relief by herd reductions, it is suggested that forest regeneration may be furthered by rotational fencing similar to practices in operation in Europe. The cost of such fencing is moderate compared with current costs of reforestation by planting seedlings.
