Assessment of European Wild Boar Impact

Record #:
Since European boar were introduced in 1912, these animals have spread throughout major portions of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Rooting damage caused by the boar could be decreasing the amount of available nutrients for the proper growth of trees. Wildlife biologists are conducting research to assess the extent of impacts and long-term changes.
