Identifying and Managing Mountain Beaver Damage to Forest Resources

The mountain beaver is a medium-sized rodent of the western Pacific Northwest. Mountain beavers cause damage to forest regeneration by clipping or girdling seedlings or saplings or both, and undermining roots. Methods to control mountain beaver include trapping, toxicants, exclusion, repellents, and habitat modification. This publication describes and recommends a combination of methods used in an integrated management strategy.
