Background information and definitions
Tree-felling poses risks to woodland-dwelling mammals. For species with young in a nest or den, tree felling could cause death of these young through injury or abandonment. Planning timber harvesting for times outside the period when young are at their most vulnerable may reduce such direct casualties of felling operations.
