Are there any plans to diminish the fox squirrel population? They are notorious for destroying patio furniture, trees, bird nests, etc. in my suburban garden.

Thanks to FGP for having this presentation. And for the excellent presentation, thank you. Lots of questions arise and more research needed overall on ecology and behavior and monitoring with camera studies, and perhaps telemetry studies for behavioral ecology and links to other species including jays that also transport acorns for new trees in new areas.

You mapped a “squirrel hunt zone” in Central California? Could laws be changed to support fox squirrel hunting, rather than grays??

It seems viable to plant links between the small populations (e.g. BC and FD). It would take a while, given time for growth....but it might give some hope to saving these small populations.

Those plant corridors would likely also benefit other species.

Pubic awareness is definitely the key. Spread the word and discuss

To clarify, are the fox squirrels are essentially suppressing the gray squirrel population? As a recent transplant, I’m delighted by the fox squirrels. They’re new to me. But something of a problem per a comment above?

Fires may burn all new plantings, so factor of catastrophe is needed.

Yes, Peter — fox squirrels are also raising havoc destroying telephone and electrical power lines!
