For a wide variety of animals, trees serve as a source
of protection. For some creatures, trees are a place to eat, sleep,
congregate, and raise their offspring. Others benefit from the
protection that trees provide from predators and the elements.
Understanding the important relationship between trees and wildlife
places an additional emphasis on the need to prevent deforestation.
Tree-dwelling animals vary depending on the locations of forests in
which they reside. In rainforest trees, one may find various species of
birds and amphibians, including toucans and tree frogs. Tree-dwelling
reptiles include boa species such as the emerald tree boa and the common
tree boa in South America. Two- and three-toed sloths are mammals that
live in the South and Central American rainforest trees. In the Amazon,
jaguars often rest or hunt in trees, while lemurs are an example of
mammals found in the forests of Madagascar. In forests around the world
are species of monkeys that also call trees home. These are just a small
sampling of tree-dwelling animals around the world.
Tree-dwelling animals aren't confined to forests. In
urban cities and towns, there are a range of animals that call
residential and public trees home. Birds, including owls, are the most
expected and arguably the most common animal one might find. Depending
on where one lives, however, one might find squirrels, opossums, and
even raccoons living in trees.
