Nääs, Robin, 2014. Älgbetesinventering på Orsblecks viltvårdsområde. First cycle, G2E. Skinnskatteberg: SLU, School for Forest Management



The purpose with this report is to compare moose browsing in young stands within a small game preservation, and if there are any differences between two areas.
The method used in the inventory is a local damage caused by moose browsing survey. It is suitable on areas that have more than 50 hectares but less than 250 hectares of young forest. Inventory of moose browsing is best done on bare ground in the spring and should preferably be done before the flushing begins at the pine.
Orsblecks game management area is divided into two different moose management areas, Noppikoski and Siljansringen. During the winter Siljansringen has a denser winter strain of moose, because of the moose seek out lower parts with less snow during the winter. This should also lead to the southernmost part should accommodate larger proportion of damages caused by browsing by moose. The hypothesis that the southern area, Siljansringen, would have more severe damage compared to the northern area, Noppikoski, was confirmed.
