    Description

    The extensive oak forests of Lower Michigan provide essential habitat for whitetailed deer and other wildlife. Clearcutting these stands results in high browse production (500-1000 lbs./acre) compared to uncut stands (200-500 lbs./acre). Most browse in uncut stands is under 18 inches tall, whereas much of that in open stands is above snowline and thus available in winter.
