In this picture you can see the damage that the grey squirrels do to trees. The bark is stripped off this tree over large areas of its trunk, and sooner or later it will begin to rot and die. Red squirrels are rare in the UK and are a protected species, but grey squirrels, pretty though they are, are officially classed as vermin along with rats and mice.
