I originally thought it was a small ash tree but I dont think so anymore. What type of forest is this plant growing in?

I have no idea what it is. I hope someone can identify it. As an obvious preferred deer browse I'd like to start looking for it while scouting. Just need to know what it is.

they sure don't prefer beech.

If there is a way to get a better photo, you'll get better answers.

That is the only photo of it still standing :).
Its hard to determine a species for a shoddy photo with no additional information. Is a N,S,E,W facing slope? On a ridge, wetland, ravine, field edge? What other species are growing with it Maple/Ash Oak/Hickory? Beech/Poplar? What other understory plants are around? How long ago was the selective cut?

Was just hoping someone would know from the picture. I don't know any of the details, its not my land. Was hoping to find out all of this information by determining what type of plant that was. Sapling Hickory seems possible.

What you witnessed happen probably gives a good indication as to why those hills are chock-full of ferns.
