Description: Technical Report
Abstract: A management techniques report on special wire fences is provided as Section 5.2.2 of the US Army Corps of Engineers Wildlife Resources Management Manual. The report was prepared as a guide to assist Corps biologists and resource managers in the selection and implementation of special wire fence techniques where these fences are required or desirable for wildlife and habitat management programs. Topics covered include description, design and construction, placement, personnel and costs, and cautions and limitations. Special wire fences are modifications of and alternatives to the conventional fence design. They are useful as interior division or cross-fences and are readily passable by wildlife, and some designs are also suitable as boundary fences. The types of special wire fences described in this report are the suspension fence, let-down fence, and high-tensile fence. Details are presented on the design, construction, installation, and maintenance of special wire fences. Specification drawings and lists of materials required are included. Guidelines are provided for the proper placement of special wire fences in appropriate project settings.
