Squirrels forage for nuts, seeds, buds, and flowers of trees. Like other tree squirrels, the gray squirrel plays an important role in what’s known as seed dispersal. As winter approaches, squirrels carry their food and bury it in several locations. They hide more food than they will recover or eat. The buried seeds and nuts sprout and begin to grow in these locations the following spring.
