Abstract

At least 20% of the Allegheny National Forest, Pennsylvania, shows tree mortality in from 10-80% of the overstory trees. Sugar maple Acer saccharum is the most seriously affected species. The impacts of this mortality are compounded by the impacts of up to 70 yr of overbrowsing by white-tailed deer Odocoileus virginianus. Long-term silvicultural research studies were reexamined and showed that most of the sugar maple mortality is occurring in sapling and pole-size stems, mortality is worse on dry than on wet sites, and even-age silvicultural treatments, especially thinning, are associated with reduced amounts of mortality and reduced rates of mortality. -from Authors
