Grey Squirrel Management Handbook
his new handbook reviews and compares methods of control of grey squirrels, how to identify damage to trees by grey squirrels and where you might expect to find damage in the woods. It provides information on equipment needed, where to get the equipment and how to use it, and includes a guide to current legislation.
To help understand what can and does go wrong with grey squirrel control, the handbook includes case studies from three estates which have carried out long term control. It looks at existing methods of control but also the wider environmental issues, silviculture, and the growing of trees that squirrels do not strip bark from such as Cherry, Ash and Lime.
The book is presented in a ring binder and pages can be photocopied for use out in the woods. All of this will be invaluable for anyone involved in grey squirrel control, but the book does much more than that.
