Porcupines, famous for their sharp quills, are found throughout the region in various habitats at most elevations. However, they are most commonly associated with ponderosa pine forests.Porcupines are active year-round and can do a lot of damage by girdling trees. They are also a threat to dogs and other animals due to their quills. Damage to some trees can be controlled by the use of metal tree collars. However, the best method is to live-trap the animals and relocate them to a suitable habitat.We can provide these services.
