SPECIES: Gaylussacia frondosa | Dangleberry
WOOD PRODUCTS VALUE : NO-ENTRY IMPORTANCE TO LIVESTOCK AND WILDLIFE : Dangleberry provides food, shelter, and cover for wildlife. Numerous birds including sharp-tailed grouse, greater prairie chicken, bobwhite quail, wild turkey, mourning dove, catbird, and scarlet tanager eat the berries. Black bear, gray fox, raccoon, and fox squirrel also eat the berries. White-tailed deer and cottontail rabbit browse stems lightly [16,33]. PALATABILITY : NO-ENTRY NUTRITIONAL VALUE : NO-ENTRY COVER VALUE : NO-ENTRY VALUE FOR REHABILITATION OF DISTURBED SITES : In Lehigh Gap, Pennsylvania, where soil is contaminated with heavy metals from a nearby smelter, dangleberry cover and density are lower than in uncontaminated areas [17]. OTHER USES AND VALUES : Dangleberry fruits are edible [33]. MANAGEMENT CONSIDERATIONS : Ehrenfeld [7] determined shrub biomass and nitrogen concentrations of dangleberry foliage from the New Jersey pine barrens. Dangleberry produces small stems but abundant leaves, so it has low shrub biomass but high net biomass production [7,8]. Regression equations for predicting dangleberry biomass which relate stem diameter to dry weight are available [8].
