    Your idea is good but I personally think that squirrels should have something special to them, like the ice age squirrel that can't really die. 

    What do you think about that?

    The squirrels should be tamed too

    I don’t know if it’s good to have them be tamable.
    I think they should just spawn on trees and randomly plant saplings on grass blocks. This would, of course, count to MobGriefing.
    They could also have about 2 Hearts but an incredibly strong regeneration. They shouldn’t take fall damage either.

    I say tamed Squirrels should collect food items from trees like acorns (which would also be player-edible), apples, cocoa beans, and maybe even sweet berries. It would bring them to a player-specified location. Placing an acorn down (shift+place) signifies where to bring the items to.
    Alternatively, they could just bring these items directly to you. This item-gathering function is activated by shift+using them and then doing the same on a tree.
    This way they serve as a passive help in gathering food and resources.
    They would probably bring nuts and sticks for the most part, rarely finding the other three.
