Two types of plastic seeding shelters are being tested in interior Alaska for regenerating white spruce. Raven damage to shelters has been observed on sites seeded shortly after burning. Damage averaged 68% with cones and 50% with funnels on a burned upland site, and 26% with funnels on a burned floodplain site. Damage was highly variable and appeared to be related to time of sowing and vegetation development near the seedspots. Care should be taken when considering use of seeding shelters after burning. North J. Appl. For. 2:41-43, June 1985.
