This paper presents examples of a forest type that seems safe, i.e., the mixed northern hardwood forest. It describes one area where an unusually heavy partial cutting in the mid-thirties maintained diversified, safe conditions. And it points out how an excessively numerous deer herd can create an unsafe forest through excessive selective browsing even though ideal silvicultural practices are applied.
