Pocket Gophers and Reforestation on Western Forests
Abstract:Pocket gophers (Geomyidae) damage conifer regeneration after logging or wildfires on western forests. Poisoning is the usual control method, but nonlethal techniques are currently being tested. Silvicultural practices that minimize habitat conditions favorable to gophers may be the most practical solution for avoiding damage.
