Restoring Ecological and Productive Function to Woodlands – a Field Practicum at Arnot Teaching and Research Forest

September 30, 2021 from 8am to 4:30pm
This workshop will help participants understand the ecological principles that underlie the complications of forest regeneration in order to restore depleted and degraded stands, especially with the confounding interactions of deer and interfering understory vegetation.  Management strategies (i.e., slash walls and "brushing") that limit exposure to deer impacts and reduce interference are showing promising results to establish new quality stands.  Pre-registration required (use link below).…See More

Ecology and Management of Ferns in Northeastern Forests

I just came across a new Forest Science Fact Sheet publication by Dave Jackson of PSU on the ecology and management of ferns.  If you're dealing with ferns, this is a great resource.  I've pasted the first paragraph below, and linked to the full publication. The publication is developed in the context of Pennsylvania's forests, but the message and content has application throughout the…See More

Limiting Deer Impacts to Forest Regeneration

Posted on December 8, 2020 at 10:30am 0 Comments

There is no shortage of evidence to document that deer negatively impact the forest 

regeneration process. A presentation on 12/8/2020 for Penn State University Cooperative Extension addressed the basic strategies to limit deer impacts and some tactics within the deer exclusion strategy.

Slides 2 and 3 include several resources that relate to the topic, include links to scientific papers that are publicly accessible.  

The presentation here as a pdf. …
