"The following forest land management plan describes one approach towards integrating timber and white-tailed deer management. The plan deals primarily with management of the northern hardwood forest under an even-aged silvicultural system. Economic considerations are given high priority, but sound long term timber and deer management goals form the framework within which the major components of the plan operate. The specificity of the plan dictates that its use as a model be limited to areas of extensive northern hardwood forest communities located in the northeastern United States. The overall approach and management philosophy probably has wider application."
