The bark completely removed from an oak tree by squirrels

  • The biggest threat to the British woodland is the grey squirrel.
  • This non-native strips bark off broadleaf and some coniferous trees between the months of April and July.
  • The damage leaves a woodland of damaged, unsightly trees, reduces the quality of timber and craft wood, and in the worst case will kill the tree.
  • Squirrels also predate and compete with native mammals and birds.
  • Therefore, annual grey squirrel control should be a part of good woodland management to fulfil all management objectives from quality timber to conservation.
  • Find out how to achieve this with David Brown, owner of the award winning Bron Haul woodland (Royal Forestry Society – Excellence in Forestry Awards Gold Medal 2015, Royal Welsh Agricultural Show – Gold Medals 2016).
  • He is an expert in controlling grey squirrels using multi-catch live traps, and will discuss the practicalities of squirrel control including methods of dispatch.
  • There will be chance to purchase the traps that you will then know how to use.
  • This course will be run at the Bron Haul woodland near Abergele.
