Mesic Red Oak-Northern Hardwood Forest on a kame terrace in Salisbury, Vermont -- Large diameter red and white oaks in this small stand are the most valuable timber in the 130 acre Salisbury Town Forest. Many trees could provide veneer-quality logs, making some worth a few hundred dollars apiece. Although the canopy is dominated by oaks, the subcanopy trees are mostly red maple, and virtually no oak seedlings or saplings are present. The large oaks established at the turn of the 20th century when wild turkey and white-tailed deer were uncommon. Today, healthy populations of these animals eat acorns or browse oak seedlings, preventing oak regeneration. Harvesting the oaks could result in conversion of the stand to less merchantable red maple or beech forest.
