Buffalo County DNR Forester Brent Weaver and 2011 Conservation Summer Intern Greg Noll, established a Regen Plot for measuring forest regeneration. The plot also includes a deer exclusion sturcture that will allow tree seedling counts to be taken outside the fence and inside the fence (without the influence of deer feeding).
The plot will remain in place for at least five years and counts will be taken each June. The plot is located in a forest that was clear cut in April, 2011. Construction of the regen plot took place in June, 2011.
