Wildlife Considerations When Planning Plant Projects

Foraging wildlife can frustrate efforts to develop forest sites, exploit plantings of natural vegetation, or even disrupt attempts to establish wildlife habitat. Often plants targeted for restoration projects also are those species most desirable as wildlife forage. This paper summarizes potential wildlife concerns when planning a planting project, along with an overview of means to alleviate problems. Wildlife species common to the Pacific Northwest likely to consume plant projects are described. Barriers, repellents and habitat modification also are described as possible approaches to alleviate problems. The advantages and disadvantages of these techniques are presented, along with factors to consider when selecting techniques.
