The development of Douglas-fir seedlings, planted under dense bracken on an old cutover in Washington's coastal zone, was closely charted over a 10-year period. Varying amounts of damage to all seedlings were caused through clipping by snowshoe hare and browsing by black-tailed deer. Despite obviously severe pressure by deer in later years, nearly all animal-caused losses were attributed to earlier damage by hare.
