DescriptionForestry and deer affect each other's welfare. Forestry and other land-use practices, particularly farming, affect deer chiefly by modifying the supplies of available food and protective cover. On the other side, an overabundance of deer can overbrowse and eliminate the most palatable and nutritious food species. If these are trees that could be valuable for timber, the amount and value of future timber crops can be greatly reduced. If this happens, forestry may become impractical; and then an important natural resource may be sacrificed to deer (Latham 1950).
