Save the Forest!

Scientists say in a new study that the return of gray wolves has dramatically altered the landscape in portions of Yellowstone National Park by curbing foraging elk herds that prevented new aspen, willow and cottonwood trees from taking root.Study author William Ripple from Oregon State University said tree stands are expanding in areas where for decades dense elk populations prevented new growth.

You want regeneration in the big woods...bring in the wolves.

It is hard to deny the effects of too many cervidae on the ecosystem.

Re: Save the Forest!

I don't think anyone is denying that....but the present solution has its limitations because of access and such.

Re: Save the Forest!

I highly suggest you throw this idea out at the January BOC meeting I understand your rational, but that would be a hard one to sell!!

Re: Save the Forest!

Some of us are the sheep herders, who move us in the direction they want us to go.
And we aimlessly follow.

Re: Save the Forest!

Don't see it happening with our dense human population.
We do have predators now the prey on young deer. But, only one(humans) that preys on adults. If we just could get longer doe seasons, we could do the job. It is the reduction in doe season length for political reasons that will lead to problems in a few years.
