Today's ForestConnect webinar was on the topic of "Management for the Next Forest." More simply stated, what barriers limit successful forest regeneration, and what management options will overcome these barriers. This is a topic that attracts some broad attention. However, patterns of forest regeneration vary across the Northeast, with fewer restrictions often where there are fewer deer. Deer and interfering vegetation are the common barriers that many owners and managers recognize.
The webinar provided data that supports the assertion that forest regeneration is thwarted in many instances. The webinar also provided superficial coverage of several management strategies; superficial because the full discussion is often developed in one or several related webinars.
