    Description

    Understanding the response of tree seedlings to browsing by white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus Zimmerman) is critical to the management of high value hardwood plantations in the Central Hardwood Forest Region. One-year-old black walnut (Juglans nigra L.), northern red oak (Quercus rubra L.), and white ash (Fraxinus americana L.) bareroot seedlings were outplanted into a replicated experimental design on a field planting site in southern Indiana at Purdue University's Southeast Purdue Agricultural Center in April 2003. Five simulated summer browse treatments were applied to 15 seedlings of each species within each of five blocks, plus a control treatment for each, and were monitored for two growing seasons.
