Controlling Grey Squirrel Damage to Woodlands

This document provides guidance on controlling grey squirrels. It is written with respect to tree damage prevention, but advice on use of Warfarin poison is no longer applicable since its use for this purpose is now prohibited. Advice on trapping control is also relevant to red squirrel conservation.

This is part of our Good Practice Guidance for Grey Squirrels, produced by John Gurnell.
