Controlling Understory Fern Competition for Regeneration Success

David R. Jackson, Penn State University Cooperative Extension

Areas of hardwood forests across the Great Lakes region, and throughout the Northeast contain dense understories of fern, in particular, hay-scented and New York ferns. Dense fern understories are often biological deserts, lacking plant and wildlife diversity, and provide little food and cover for wildlife. Dense fern understories also interfere with the regeneration of hardwood forests, threatening their sustainability across the region. This presentation will cover how to identify the most problematic ferns, why they are a problem, and what the best control methods are.
