Managing Deer Habitat in Loblolly-Shortleaf Pine Forest

The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.

Practical management guidelines permit the forest landowner to improve white-tailed deer habitat in loblolly-shortleaf pine timber stands while maintaining or improving timber production. Deer food, and thus deer herds, can be increased by widely spacing and frequently thinning trees, retaining hardwoods along drainageways, prescribed burning, regulating the size, shape, and distribution of cutting units, establishing and maintaining forest openings, and favoring desirable foot plants.
