Damages by red deer (Cervus elaphus) on trees in forest habitats makes permanent and big problem, as well as in many European countries, as well in Croatia. Researches on this topic in Croatia were done occasionally, without systematic monitoring of impact and intensity of damage on forest stands. Experimental determination of damages was done in 2012, in the hunting ground VII/15 “Zapadna Garjevica” (hunting surface 23, 759 ha), and located in the middle part of Moslavačka Gora Mountain. Field surveys were performed on selected plots with total surface of 584 ha. The composition of dendroflora, number of trees, diameter breast high and tree age were determined on each plot. Data were collected according to methodology for forest management and inventory. Total of 196, 031 trees has been measured, of which 58, 255 was damaged, and 137, 776 undamaged. Damages in the forest stands are permanently present because man with its management practice changed and imposed living conditions for deer game. Occurrence and intensity of damages by red deer did not increase, but slightly declined for 0.4% in last twenty four years. Regulations in the hunting ground and proper management by creating surface convenient for pasture, sufficient and quality food and feeding sources, facilitate setting up a balance between forest management and size of red deer population in the hunting ground.
