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 results from a long-term exclosure study in mixed-woods along Minnesota’s North Shore from Mark White, forest ecologist with the Nature Conservancy. 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 .
