Grey squirrel on branchGrey squirrels are a major impediment to successful tree planting in the UK, and some non-peer-reviewed work by the GWCT has shown the circumstances when grey squirrels can be important predators of small woodland birds.

Like mink, we are being told that there is not yet available a technique that can clear an area of woodland of grey squirrels and keep it clear. This indeed might be the case, but is it true? Our research programmes are beginning to examine this question.
