I thought I'd do a fun little series on Animals in Trees. Of course, the most common would be squirrels -- and I include some squirrels at the end.
Bears like trees. They go into trees for two reasons: First, for safety they may scamper up a tree to get out of reach of a potential predator -- humans. But secondly, for food. In the Spring it is fresh easily digestible buds or flowers. In the fall it is berries or pine nuts.
