Squirrel damage to Norway spruce

Are you seeing small shoot tips littering the ground around spruce trees? This is the handiwork of the Red Squirrel. They snip off the shoot, eat the insides of the buds, then discard. And repeat. This pruning service is free and does not hurt the health of the tree. (Photo: P. Tillich)
