Title: Keep forage low to improve deer habitat

Author: Blair, Robert M.;

Date: 1968

Source: Forest Farmer. 27(11): 8-9, 22-23

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Depending on their age and how they are managed, southern pine plantations can provide sizable amounts of forage for deer. Since millions of acres of upland deer habitat are already in plantations, and millions more are slated for planting, the browse they yield will become increasingly important to southern deer herds--and to the sportsmen who are interested in seeing the herds prosper.

Keywords: browse, forage, white-tailed deer, pine plantation, loblolly pine, Louisiana
