A hardwood cutting study was established in 1957 in the Central Adirondack Mountains of New York, with 15 blocks at five treatment levels from clearcut to uncut. White-tailed deer have so influenced the regeneration of desirable hardwoods in this study that effects of cutting level can be accurately evaluated only within deer exclosures. Fifty-one two-milacre exclosure plots measured 12 seasons after treatments indicated satisfactory regeneration of desirable species, primarily sugar maple and yellow birch, over a wide range of cutting treatment.
