Forest Deer Exclosures Near the Cornea Cabin
Experiment Id

This experiment consists of 8 plots located in the woods near the Cornea Cabin. The plots are near the north end of Lindemans transect near Cedar Bog Lake, in the same place as the litter/lysimeter samplers set up by Grigal et al.

Plots are set up in two rows of four, with one row in the upland forest and the other row on the slope leading down to the cedar swamp. Two fences in each row are fenced to exclude deer (plots 1, 2, 5, and 6 are fenced). Plots are 10m x 20m.

Trees inside each plot are tagged and mapped. Trees are tagged with prestamped aluminum tags wired to the trees. Trees are mapped by measuring the distance to the northeast (right) and northwest (left) corner stakes.

Data from the experiment include maximum vertical height of previous years growth from ground level at the base of the tree.
