2018 Webinar: Managing Deer Browse for Forest Health: Insights from the Great Lakes Silviculture Library
Managing browse from white-tailed deer is an everyday challenge for Minnesota’s natural resource managers. This two-part presentation will include a presentation of research from Christel Kern and the US Forest Service Northern Research Station. We’ll then transition to discussing the use of shelterwood silvicultural treatments and seedling protection treatments in oak-dominated forests in central Minnesota, presented by John Geissler of St. John’s Abbey Arboretum. These presentations will draw from new and existing case studies published on the Great Lakes Silviculture Library .
Resources mentioned during the webinar:
- Strip clearcuts in swamp hardwoods that deter deer browse (case study mentioned by Christel)
- Pottery clay piles shelterwood with deer browse control (case study mentioned by John)
- UMN Extension bud cap video
- Fencing handbook for 10' woven wire deer exclosure fence
- We are always looking for new case studies about deer browse or other silviculture on the Great Lakes Silviculture Library
