    Description

    The forests of the Allegheny Plateau section of northwestern Pennsylvania have been severely impacted for more than 70 years by selective browsing by white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus). Historical and ecological interactions of deer and the forest ecosystem in this region from pre-settlement times to the present are presented based on data from the Allegheny National Forest area. The data suggest that deer impacts on forested ecosystems can be controlled through a combination of increased, sustained deer harvests and increased forage production through timber harvesting.
